Thanx for getting hold of me so we can have these additions to our database. I feel sure that Antonio will agree with me that this is a good one.

Here some previews of the article (13 pages) published on "International Militaria Collector" (IMC) about the Metz cufftitle.
It is an extract of the "Metz 1944" chapter taken from my next book about the campaign cufftitles of the Third Reich.
Hope you can find it useful.

Very nice example Tim

I just finished Antonio's article in the International Militiaria Collector magazine, very well done and chock full of great info on these rare cufftitles. Yours is a textbook example and in great shape.
