Yes, if authentic this is obviously a very valuable collection and high quality pictures showing fronts and backs are needed for a proper evaluation. I think every piece (except those which are exact duplicates) need to be shown.

Your choice mate..do a sampler first..i know it can be time consuming but it would be worth it..and yes the more detailed the better....Also im sure many of the guys on here would like to know more about your Fathers Military career, we are all History buffs here and bringing back something like he did would be interesting to know where and with whom he served...It certainly looks like a great collection
If original, you're looking at well over $15,000 worth of memorabilia here...The cuff-titles alone are highly desirable...Welcome to the Forum, John...you're in the right place for honest feedback on your father's bringbacks...

Welcome to the Forum. Thank you for sharing with us your father's Dachau hoard. For many years, individuals outside the U S did not believe the stories of insignia warehouses was all rubbish. Your grouping is another historical perspective of what was found there by so many American troops. Over the 58 years I have collected, I have had the opportunity to see and purchase many groupings like this. The blank collar tabs are the rank tab worn on the left collar of the SS uniform. Without any adornment, they indicate the lowest rank of SS Mann. The "W" is a slide on shoulder strap insignia from the SS Panzer Grenadier REgiment Westland.

It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
Welcome and Blimey !!! Looking forward to seeing more , better and closer photos of this horde
Glenn: Those 27 (!!!) cufftitles alone must be worth $20,000+ (low average of $740 per cufftitle)... no? Then you have the SS dagger, map satchel and other various SS insignia ---
What a hoard either way!! Great to finally be able to see one of these hoards as brought back --- thanks for sharing!
If you do decide to sell some of these items, I would like to encourage you to offer/list them here in our classifieds...I'm positive these items would sell quickly here at an honest and fair price...
