...from what I can see -and I'n no experxt - it's a fake one - to me the texture of the fabric is far away from how it should look like.....

It’s virtually identical recently sold by a highly respected dealer.

I can only offer sub-standard photos of mine for comparison.


And... I just realized you posed a HG Div cuff and I have an RGG. Trying to delete...

Could you show that one to us?

I don't like the one you have posted, at all.

It came from a veteran’s family along with 14 other items that are all original . Nevertheless, I accept that two European WAF members do not like. I do thank you for your feedback.

No way....I agree with Willi, not a fan of this cuff. The material is way off for starters.

The fabric is not the quality (badge cloth) used for Luftwaffe cufftitles.
The embroidery is a bit sketchy.
The Russia’s braid edging is noticeably thinner than it should be.
It’s not unheard-of that vets may buy trinkets from time to time as a keepsake of their former service unbeknownst to their relatives who sell them in good faith.
Were I offered it, I'd not buy it.
