    Default early LAH tab

    Here is a tab i used to own a few years ago.I traded it away for a foreign volunteer tab.As i'm now collecting runic tabs,i was lucky enough to be able to buy it back.Does anyone have any similar early tabs they can show.
    Cheers
    Dave.

    Bump. I am quite shock this thread hasn't received any post. What a rare variant, one which is hardly ever encountered. Thank you for posting it, and I'm glad you were able to obtain it again. Is there a story of how it came to be in your possess for the second time?

    Hi Youthcollector
    Thanks for posting on my thread,I originally bought it from ebay it was listed in the wrong section so it managed to evade the ebay police.I have just bought it back through Martin stiles latest update at Hanners reich.
    Here is another nice early example which sold on his site as part of a early LAH grouping.You will notice as in my tab the runes are different to what we are used to seeing.When mine arrives back home i will take some better pics with my new camera.
    Cheers

    Great tabs! I especially love the look of the black and silver twisted piping on these early ones.
    thanks DDavies for starting this thread and thank you Y-C for bumping this to the top as I never saw it before

    Yes, they are quite different than the variants we are use to seeing. That's why I like them so much, however, although admittedly they're similar to a pug, in the sense they're so ugly it's almost cute. It could be possibly that this is why nobody has commented thus far, as they may not be familiar with this example. However, from what knowledge I possess of this tab both examples look very real.
    I wish I had an example to contribute, but at this time I don't have any early LAH examples in my collection. I'm always on the look out for this variant as well as the skinny runes variant.

    It's indeed a "uncoventional" tab, but the structure and material looks to be wartime.

    I would say pre-war. That was always my understanding at least.

    I knew it was early Martin puts it pre 35.

    Yes, I saw he labeled it as such when looking at the mantel that is on his site, too. As for the above collar tab, I honestly thought it would've generated more interest. I'm quite shocked it didn't, actually. I can only assume my theory was accurate, which was most aren't familiar with this variant, therefore they are reserving judgement. Of course, that is not necessarily a bad thing. No opinion can definitely be better than a wrong opinion, especially in regards to ss insignia.
