In answer to TrondK's question I believe there were approximately just over 100 standards awarded to the SS.
Period photos of the standards awarded to units of the Allgemeine-SS seem to be scarcer than those showing the SS-VT and SS-TV examples so I thought I would add this one of the colour party from SS-Regiment 1 parading their Oberbayern standard.
Great dàlquien, thank you for finding time to answer my curiosity. Now as we now the numbers, then i wonder if there were spares. And were the "old" Standarten taken into the meltingpot as the war progressed on, or were they placed in a military depot/kaserne "museum/display".
I am also fishing after how many original examples that does exist today, all standarten included in the numbers. SS-VT, SS-TV and Allgemeine-SS.
Since the asking price is astronomical, i am quite certain there cant be many out there in original condition.
Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.
