    Hi Guys, these can often be found mint unissued from the "Dachau hoard". This one was actually worn by a member of the "Handschar" Division. Again taken out of a soldiers souvenir photo album.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Sadly, no I don't.

    It is such a shame to see stuff taken out and then sold.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade, I agree with you. Same happens for beautiful photo albums "cannibalized" to sell the best pics only and destroying a precious historical document...

    If this is original, and I believe it is, it's PRICELESS!

    Beautiful! I think I'm in love!

    Hi Ade

    I have never actually seen one that has been worn.

    They are always the 'minty fresh, stored in a warehouse quality'.

    Nice one!

    This is normal, due of a thousands of different SS insignia was picked up by US veteran. The worn are more rare.

    I think there are hardly any originals in USA. Croatian volunteers fought on Russian front and then later at home against partisans. Only Handschar division was in Italy for a while.
