    I don´t own these but I thought to put them here as they are very wanted and there are several versions. You could buy these from military canteens during ww2 as a "souvenir". I think there are also versions with 1941-1944 with Lapland showing separately above or not. So all in all there were some ten or more different versions ( year marking, badge colour, Lapland above ) to get The badge background was either white or black. The names on the sides are battle places.

    There are also alot of fakes. Usually you could identify these as the lion below flags is not sharp-edged. Hope you like the look of these. Cheers.
