As you may have noticed recently, East German items are getting very hard to find. Lucky for you, I managed to find a super nice, inexpensive piece of Cold War history that is perfect for any collection.
These cuff titles were worn on the left cuff of East German border guard troops' uniforms to identify them as such. These are perfect as-is for a display/collection, but are also sew-on ready for your East German uniform. This is a GREAT way to grab a very unique piece of history, while not breaking the bank. These are the real deal, as I am not aware of anyone every reproducing these.
Translation on cuff is loosely "Border Guards of the German Democratic Republic (DDR)"
