What (who) is this cuff title for? Is it real or a reproduction? It is 15-1/2 in long and 1-1/4 in. wide

Thank you in advance.

I have never collected Third Reich but I do know that 30 years ago, when I had the money to collect anything, cuff titles were already a minefiled for the unwary and I also know that the percentage of fake TR stuff has skyrocketed, along with the expertise of the forgers, in the intervening years.  I'd suggest you re-post your query in the Third Reich uniform and equipment forum further up the page, where the experts may more easily find it and give you informed opinions.

 Good, luck!

I had posted this cuff title in a different forum and it was suggested to me to post it here to maybe get more answers.

This is a cuff title for Rommel's Afrika Korps.  I have never seen one hand embroidered like that before.  Definitely very interesting.  I can tell you that I have not seen a reproduction like that either.  Perhaps a theater made example?

Paul,

  Thank you for your information. I have seen the brown Afrika Cuff tiles but not a green one. The lettering and palm trees have the silver bullion thread.

This one is faded and looks like it had been sewn on at one time.
