    I would suggest that anyone deciding they want to take the plunge in collecting SS cloth insignia pick up a copy of Angolia's book "Cloth insignia of the SS". It is out of print but copies can be had.



    The first and most significant reason these tabs are bad is that there were never any collar tabs mounted with cap skulls! Which this one has. Tabs with skulls were either machine embroidered in thread or hand embroidered in bullion(alluminum wrapped thread). The pipping is also the wrong type.

    I agree those are terrible fakes and this seller is always on ebay pushing that crap. But never say never about Cap insignia on collar tabs He is a Heer Panzer guy though.

    Nice find on that photo. I agree ss collecting is difficult. I am trying to start to pick up a few pieces but I am researching my butt off.

    Here is another bogus set. One reason to doubt them is that this guy sells only fakes.
