SS Reich PLate
I am getting my dad this plate for Christmas. He is a TR plate collector and he needs an SS plate and a police one. Anyhow I found this and it looks good to me, but I am cautious as it is SS and goes for like $ times what the other plates go for. Any opinions. Help would be appreciated. I would ordinarily ask my dad but that would be tough making it a surprise.
Thanks for any and all help Guys !!

I wondered if you read this thread, which deals with a similar plate: https://www.warrelics.eu/forum/field...-plate-343334/ ?
I note that the "SS Reich" script is significantly different on the example you have shown, however, I wonder if the only way to be sure that this is good would be by an in-hand examination, to check for any sign that that "SS Reich" is applied recently.
Strange how far apart the runes are from the Reich. Not one I would buy as an original, but that is as always just an opinion.
its just an opinion.
Good point. Odd distance to the 'Reich' indeed.
Not for me either, sorry. These are - as stated in the link kindly provided by Philip above, reproduced. The original examples I have encountered are much neater in appearance. Too much of a risk for me - I assume the price is not cheap, as with anything marked with those runes.

Kris @ thirdreicharts.com maybe a good resource for you. He has beautiful Allach figurines and other third reich plates ect.
Also, said SS division did not exist in 1938.
I note from comments on another forum (SS- Reich plate. Good? or Bad? - Wehrmacht-Awards.com Militaria Forums) that the "Reich" designation on these china items may not be related to the Das Reich division. It would be good to have an authoritative answer on this!
I don't think the "Reich" aspect has anything to do with the Division either.
