Correction
Where it says rank insignia you should read Regimental or Waffenfarbe.

So I guess the question is .....

....are these authentic period pieces ?

....are these post war "artwork" to be sold in a retail shop for tourists/collectors?

..... or are these some type of fantasy piece meant to deceive?

Do not rightly know with these handcrafted items - period reconvallesence or POW handcraft is possible.
