Here is another frequent visitor to the forum. Most of the time he is already on a hat. The colors are just about right and the formation of the eagle and roundle are good. The material is the big "Tell" on this guy. As with most of the insignia I have posted it is made of newer man-made material. The panzer eagles tend to be made from cotton.

This signal blitz I just picked up. It is very well done. The execution of the blitz is fantastic and with a vey desirable color!! The base material that it is on is new!

Collar tabs are always a problem with me. The new generation is very well made. I tend to see the base material a little bit lighter in color than the originals. Here are some late war repros.

This fellow needs no introduction here but I will any how. This tropical edelweiss is seen all over ebay and hits the forum alot. It is very well made but with a bad base material. Alot of times you will see these cut and folded on a very neatly trimmed piece of khaki material or with the excess base material removed.

The Backside. The design of this patch is very nicely executed.

The backside of this patch shows the incorrect BeVo weave construction with a mass of loose fibers.

There is a newer generation of eagle that is hitting the market with very good front design but made of polyester and has this loose weave on back.

This Turkistan patch is nice but in reality it is incorrect with the crescents on the towers. They almost have the color of the base material right.

Greetings All,

Some of these pieces look fantastic while others can be dimissed looking at them once. The only true way to discern original is research, study and hands on application.

There are lots of variables in Heer cloth,especially in specialty patches, that you can come across during your collecting. Variations and knowing the variations makes this hobby that much more fun.

Good Hunting.

Fred
