Judging from the photos, the SS Eichenlaub helmet cover appears genuine; however it is not possible to be absolutely sure. I would be concerned with the rusted clips as most originals were aluminum, but phosphate coated steel was used as well. The material is without doubt original, but many fakes have been constructed with such.

Thank you all for your help thus far.

It's always fun to learn something new.

Here are some pics of a bunch of insignia with this group. Any howlers and/or important/valuable finds?

Cheers,

Roy

P.s. sorry again for the inverted images, no idea why it's started to do that. Just hang upside down like Batman...

All the rare bits are fake sorry
There are a few original wings and cap badges though. The Airborne title is good

Thanks for that.

I strongly suspected that was the case but thought it best to check.

Here is the next lot of FSSF interest.

Cheers,

Roy

Commando and recce titles and Pegasus are fake. Some British wings and curved airborne title are fine.
