    Default Found a collar tab button

    Hello there,

    On our last digging tour, we found this button. It looks like it comes from a collar tab or shoulder board. Anyone have some info on this little item. We had a little discussion about it and one guy think it's from a SS tab. What is to say about that?

    Regards, Lars

    Looks like a regular shoulder board 'pip' to me. . Dont quote me though. I found some small glass pips that are apparently for shoulder boards too, though. I'm sure you can get some to give someone he to give definite info on it.

    No problem!Also, I dont think theres a way to tell SS from WH when it comes to pips. Although the SS did have nearly EVERYTHING marked "ss".. including bullets, but Im sure you know this!~

    Yes the SS was a little strict on this . We will get it cleaned up and see if there is some stamps there. I doubt it though.

    Thank you zwerge. Why do you all call it a pip? I'm not really into these items as you might have noticed

    I agree, metal rank pips for use on German military shoulder boards and collar tabs for rank designation. WW2 pips I believe have split pin attachments that originated from the center rear of the pips, with post war having 2 prongs in opposite corners
