Estimated market value:
Cuff titles could serve several different purposes. They were used as commemorative or traditions insignia, or identifying the wearer as part of an elite unit. They were also used as career/role insignia. Some cuff titles were awarded to soldiers taking part in certain campaigns, making them the equivalent of a campaign medal. These are more accurately known as sleeve bands.
Cuff titles were mostly worn on the right sleeve, however, there were many exceptions to this rule.
This cuff title was probably worn by members of the Armed Forces War Correspondent Battalion that was established in 1944, but this is not known for sure. It is a black band with light-grey Gothic letters, with a silver-coloured top and bottom stripe.
