    Handsome!

    I think all the badges are 4 pin. Unless you get them used, in which case they are often 3, 2, 1, or 0 pin Smile

    Aha,than my Green "french" beret, is most likely German, as it has 4 distinct holes where a badge would have been fixed!!

    The four holes are a dead give away that a BW looking beret is BW Very Happy

    The flagless FJ beret badges are pretty rare. You can get the other two (Panzer and Jäger) pretty easily.
