    Default Police Cloth Insignia

    Hello,

    Here is my modest collection of police cloth insignia. I collect police sleeve eagle types and patterns. Each of the eagles shown is unique and represents a specific maker or type. Some of these modest insignia are very difficult to find, and are significantly more rare than some of the more "glamorous" insignia.

    Regards,

    Thank you for the kind words. Until recently these were very much underappreciated by the collecting community.

    Very nice collection.
    Could you solve a problem.
    My reference for the Postschutz has an orange collar patch.
    Yet Iíve seen it described as a green patch with orange piping.
    Would this be just variations from different periods?
    The patches changed when the SS took control. I thought the collar insignia change to the standard SS, but did the Postschutz change to a green patch piped with orange to show that they werenít your standard head-hunters?

    Hello,

    The Postschutz was not part of the civil police so a bit out of my interest, but I can offer an opinion.

    My understanding is that an orange piped collar patch was used prior to being taken over by the SS. After the take over standard W-SS uniforms were worn with a Postschutz cuff title.

    The early uniforms and insignia are EXTREMELY rare and I have never seen a tunic, so orange tab or orange piped tab.........my bet would be orange piped. they wore green tunics with slightly darker green trim and orange piping so a green tab with orange piping would make sense, but this is just a guess.

    Best regards,
    Bill Unland

    Thanks,
    I thought maybe they had started of with the full colour patch (as you say they were part of civilian police like the waterways police) in the 20/30ís.
    Then when Hitler got round to militarising everyone and the SS took over, changed to the SS patches with orange piping.
    Hereís a link to an insignia sight you probably know of showing the postschutz badges.

    Thanks again for your time.
