    I believe they are bad.

    The shape of the skull and the slightly off centre "K" is not what I would expect to see. Then the buckram backing, etc....

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade has addressed the major points on why these are products of the 4th Reich.

    The piping is wrong, too, if you compare the fake with the nice, original pieces from the Hritz collection.

    Original pieces of this type are very, very few and concentrated in only a few, select places.

    Here it is in wear by the Kommandant of Mauthausen. Interesting how all these KZ guys had "textbook" uniforms:

    YES, they did put alot of attention, and great detail into their uniforms, some of them are like masterpieces, superbly done.

    The man in question is Ziereis, behind whom is Eigruber in NSDAP Adjustierung.

    I am not sure what you mean by "textbook." Read the excerpts from the SS Befehlsblatt I posted elsewhere apropos this empty word.

    There is an excellent book in German about an inmate who became the Mauthhausen camp photographer, or an aid to same. I shall post the title elsewhere. There are many good books, too, on Nazi life in Oberoesterreich.

    While in Vienna this winter, I bought an excellent volume on the Niebelungenwerke in St. Valentin to the east of Linz. There was made heavy armor. Muathausen was the center of a huge complex of additional camps focused on the industrial production in the Linz area. Linz is the second city of Austria and home of the man, himself, more or less.

    The SSTV collar patches are almost as much an abyss of disappointment and regret as are the silly cap badges, in fact.

    Here your eye balls can burst, since this collection has now been split up. It is also surely not my property.

    I guess there are those out there eagerly trying to put these pieces of the true cross back together again.
