    Gentkemen,

    need you help about this high ranking SS tab please.

    I do not really like it, but it's too high level for my poor knowledge about such items.

    Thank you very much

ID:	789777This is Robert Hassler's, and I think this image more than makes my point in post 2. We have many images of real such collar patches, especially in the Delich items.

    Such SS high leader collar tab fakes have been around for decades. Their age does not make them any less junk.

    The Bando Beaver insignia book also has many nice, clear illustrations of such real insignia.

    The purchase of said book is a requirement for anyone who wishes to own or aspires to own any rare, seldom seen SS collar patch.

    I agree with my colleague. Comparing the detail work and the material quality of the tab with the genuine examples posted by FB make it quite apparent the piece is not what it purports to be.

    The authentic embroidery of these items is so striking, and the imitations, especially this old fake, are pathetic.

    I do not keep up on the good fakes, as this is not really my expertise.

    I collect black SS uniforms and caps. In the process, I have some insight into the insignia and the embroidery.

    There are others here who keep abreast of things, but the original post here contains an old, 1960s or 1970s fake which is hardly subtle in its lousiness.

    Moreover, the Bando Beaver book is in print in France, is not very costly, and is the best to my mind of its type.

    It does not contain nearly as many errors as Angolia, and its imagery is superior by far.

    Or, the errors in French I did see are not nearly as bad as in certain other popular and overly cited works.
    damit, basta.
