    I don't know enough about these to comment on the shield, but why they think it is on a SS backing escapes me, as it appears to be on Feldgrau which is more likely to be for the Heer, though if it had a known history, SS might be correct. Obviously, SS would probably make it more valuable and that is why the claim is made IMHO.
    Regards,

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    This types now accepted as period. The only Demjansk produced in Zinc.

    Jerry's right. No way of knowing whether a Demjansk shield is SS or Heer. Same backing cloth. Waffen SS just sexes it up.

    Hope that helps...
