Waffen SS Double-Armed Swastika Collar Tab for Temporary Concentration Camp Guards

1GC-6. The double-armed swastika collar tab was said to be designed by Himmler himself, for use by older Wehrmacht, Luftwaffe and other ageing reserve soldiers who replaced younger and more fit SS Totenkopf troops who were on concentration camp duty. The double armed swastika collar tab is also seen, in wartime photographs, being worn by members of the 15th SS Division, (Latvian Legion); however, there are no regulations for the use of this tab by the Latvian Legion and the reason this tab shows up on Latvian SS uniforms is still a mystery. This example is heavily machine-embroidered, using silver/gray thread on a coarse black wool background. The backside exhibits a single line of silver/gray stitching with a standard buckram stiffener, that age and is worn on one corner from use, and or, during laundering while on a uniform.

The tab has the appearance of once being used but there is no obvious stitching or thread to support that belief. A very nice, somewhat, "salty," example. Vg. $265.00 SOLD
