    Default Croatian SS volunteer award

    Hello,

    I've been offered to buy this, but i've never seen this before and i couldn't find to much about it on the internet either.

    Maybe you gentlemen can help me with a few question.

    Is it really a Croatian SS volunteer shield?

    How rare is it?

    What's the price range on this kind?

    Thanks

    Hi, and welcome to the forum!

    The pics are tiny, we need much bigger detailed pics.

    This is not strictly speaking SS at all, but was issed by the Einsatzstaffel der Deutsche Mannschaft in Kroatien.

    This is the Erinnerungsabzeichen.

    The DM-Volksgruppenführer Branimir Altgayer instituted this badge. The award came in 2 grades, silver and bronze.

    The silver grade was for all members of the ES who took part in its formation, and who attended the first officers course in Zagreb 1941 or were members of the ES who served for 18 months or more and those that were wounded in combat.

    The bronze grade was for service of at least 6 months and for persons outside the German minority group in Croatia who contributed in the formation, and for the protection of the German areas within Croatia. The badge came with a paper award citation certificate.

    It can be seen in wear on SS uniform by men who later joined the SS.

    This appears to be a good one. Pity about the broken pin. But this style is correct.

    It is a rare badge.

    I don't know the value, sorry.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I though that you might wish to see a badge in wear? Seen here worn by a man who later joined the SS.

    Cheers, Ade.
