    The Angola and Mollo books are musts. I enjoy the Beaver series but feel it is more of a coffeetable book than a heavy reference. Nevertheless get them.

    I'd like to hear more about the insignia book project, why will it be of reduced scope?

    I just ordered Collecting Third Reich SS & Political Cuffbands vol 1. How about Vol. 2 ? what is it about? Rare cufftitles only? It seems rarer and more expensive than vol.1.
    Actually I am more interested in tabs, TK's and eagles, but I also like to have book with nice pictures of items I will never own, just for study and reference. I like to extend my collecting with books, to reach where I cannot afford with real things. For me collecting is research, mainly.

    I also just noticed an error in my earlier post: The work will be completed by Mark Bando, not William Shea (who had finished the headgear volume). Sorry.

    With 118 pages, volume 2 is thicker than vol. 1, which had only 79 pages. Vol. 2 also has some period photographs, which vol. 1 did not.
    91 pages of vol. 2 are about SS cuffbands (including the Stoßtrupp Adolf Hitler 1923 cuffband), the rest covers SA-, NSDAP-, HJ- and NS-RKB cuffbands.

    The Ulrich of England cufftitle books, both volumes, are important for you to become familiar with all varieties of amnufacture as well as variants and sub-variants. You never know what you will run across.

    The Beaver books show clear close shots of insignia as worn on the tunics. There are enough good photos to make the 3 volume set a must.

    I have all the books mentioned, but the first book I ever picked up on German militaria was the Ballentine book SS Regalia. All color photos and you might be able to find a copy for under $20. A fun book to have.
