Tropical Heer Oberschutze Rank Badges

Hi, here are some of the most commonly found types of tropical Heer Oberschutze (private first class) rank badges.

The badge on the left is for the tropical greatcoat (Mantel).  The badges in the centre and right are for the tropical tunic. 

These badges are also great entry level collectibles, which can now still be be found for a reasonable price.

Regards
Markus
