Need Help: SS Sanitätsstaffel collar tab, opinions
This is an auction currently up on eBay, which makes me not trust its authenticity. Also, the fact that it is an SS item up on eBay makes me trust it even less. I'm not too well versed in collecting to begin with, and especially not in cloth insignia, so I welcome any advice. Thanks.WW2 German ZZ Medical Collar Tab RZM Tag Very Nice Original | eBay

Hi, and welcome to the forum!
The tab is an out and out fake.
Had good advice? Saved money? Why not become a Gold Club Member, just hit the green "Join WRF Club" tab at the top of the page and help support the forum!
Stay away from SS unless you have a reliable source!
When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
The price of $450.00 should be a big red flag as although the seller knows what it is, he offers it at 20% of market value. Common sense alone should prevail. It is definitely a poor copy.

SS items + EBay = No Good. Same with Ioffer.
Thanks everyone, much appreciated

That is, SSVT and not SSTV, but you can see the differences, which are manifest.
and a superb tab at that FB. Stunning actually.
Thank you. One more thing for you to buy when the time is right.
