Here is the 60 confirmed kill WWII German Sniper patch I mentioned in my reply regarding the authenticity of my patch. This came direct off of the Caracci Militaria webpage. I know him and he is a recognized expert. As you can see, this is one in good condition like mine, not cut from a uniform as the one just posted. The gold border is for the 60 kills, mine is only the basic grade patch. Again, the colors differ somewhat I think due to lighting conditions and the possibility that they were made in different locations perhaps. So don't be so damn quick to make judgements until you have all the facts.
