    The document is a poor fake I'm afraid. In addition with what has already been mentioned above, the stamp says (xxxx) Regiment 3: - Panzer Grenadier Rgt 3 belonged to the 2 SS Division Das Reich and bore the title 'Deutschland', while if it is Panzer Rgt 3 then that would be 3 SS Division Totenkopf. And while it could of been possible for a sub-unit from one division to be loaned to another to strengthen for a specific attack/defense the final nail is that the signature is a poor attempt to just sign any type of signature without knowledge of who was in command of the authorising unit.
    Some good advice from Hucks and others about this document which is indeed a very poor fake with a number of things on it which should ring alarm bells, due to the price of SS documents it's really worth doing some research into documents / SS Unit compostion/ commanders/ german wording etc,

    regards

    makes sense, thank you, i started collecting german relics in the 50,s when you could knock on any vets door and ask, and usually get something, my father served 1940 to 45, and brought home a lot of things, but always kept it away, never spoke about anything, but i had some very nice items i wish i had now, but id like to gather a few things again, l dont have that feel for things anymore...so the advise will be taken...lm glad i found the site, it is interesting to read through all the posts...regards to all...
