tropical shoulder boards, opinoins

Hi mates

here are a matching pair of tropical boards. I should like to know what do you think about their originality.
They have been found on a continental tunic and have been used upside down, with the inner liner used externally as their folding and wear clearly prove.
The piping is partially discolored, in both the boards, in similar areas.
Second question, please which unit belonged to this waffenfarbe?

Ciao

Marco, these are cheap reproductions. I hope you didn't buy them.

Re: tropical shoulder boards, opinoins

These are fakes as Chris mentions, nothing good about them. Including what appears to be grey ? piping which is for propaganda.

Re: tropical shoulder boards, opinoins

Piping is terrible, not even close to original patterns. On my screen it looks like dark green but not dark enough to call it Dunkelgrün for Admin. I don't think it matches any real coloration in order to spot what they were supposed to be.
