They are superb examples and the SS-Hauptamt is one to be deservedly proud of.
Here are two nice, real so called RZM ones from Whammond's site. We thank him for his signal service to collectors.
Of course, most of these were marked by the RZM etc in some way.
These are machine embroidered in grey silk thread.
Bob Hirtz and Bob Coleman can really speak to this agenda, as I do not actually collect these.
here we could find some photos :
its listed in WAF as well.
The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )
1st July 1916
Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
House Carles at the Battle of Hastings
I believe this title is just a bit of a different variation but original, not a common one but I have seen a few including mint and worn examples. Some collectors do not like it but some had no problem with it including Bob Hritz, Tony Barto, Gary Wood, Jim Toncar, etc.
This site profited greatly from Bob Hritz's able guidance in the past, but he does not appear to post here any more. I do not collect such cuff titles, however, I am sure we would all be grateful if you would post some visual evidence in this connection.
Visual evidence, sure no problem, I do not make up things http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru...d.php?t=634524
bnz this link does not open I suggest another alternative in providing a photo. Regards Larry
