    Default Totenkopf tabs help!

    Hello!
    I'm trying to recriate a Totenkopf officer's black panzer jacket in late 43 or
    early 44.
    The only decent tabs I have (got a few from different supplyers...) are the vertical, eyes to the left, tabs.
    These are fenomenal, hand made alu bullion, but I don't know if they are period correct.
    Can anyone help?



    Kindest regards,
    Pedro

    Hi Pedro, this type of tab would not be correct for '43 or '44.

    Welcome to the forum too!

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks for the reply!
    I was going to add the TK cuff title to the jacket too, so I gess this puts it after 42 and no vertical tabs can be used right???
    Do you know any decent suplyer or TK officer tabs?
    With the correct alu pipping and preferably hand embroidered?

    I'm also looking for rank pips. The best detailed I can find.

    Yours,
    Pedro
