    This year I was able to purchase my first two and only SS items. Both are Dachau collar tabs and one of the 13th Waffen Gebirgs Division "Handschar" and the other of the 29th Waffen Grenadier Division. I purchased the Handschar tab on my own at an antique store and after confirmation from the board here I went back and purchased the 29th.

    As Larry C says... It's not the size of the collection but the passion for it. It's a start and I hope to add more in the future.

    My contribution to SS favorites is my 1944 TKR which per genealogy belonged to Karl Robert Herrmann, SS " 357.135, died 8-10-1960 in Salzuflen. He was promoted to SS-Brigadefuher and Generalmajor de Waffen SS and der Polizer on 21-6-43. This Ring is Boyle certified. Ring is in excellent condition but teeth markings are a point of wear,but easily seen with 10xmag.

    Out of interest, how much do the "Sanitas Abteilung" C/T's go for? I'd quite like one. Stewy

    Default My SS favorite with shipping crate & capture papers

    Hey All,

    Here is my favorite SS Piece. This was from a soldier named Elmer R. Lundgren. He was a deer hunting companion of my Grandfather, fellow soldier and a friend of our family. I purchased the dagger, shipping crate & capture paper years ago. I was blessed to be able to know his daughter in MN and procure it before my Grandfather passed. Below is some history on him and the 82nd Engineer Combat Battalion in which he served. The hand crafted wood crate made specifically to house this dagger perfectly is very nice. He shipped it to good friend Art Mattson in Duluth, MN in 1945 after the war. Having the capture paper and to have met this vet personally and his family is priceless to me.

    - Served with the 82nd until November 21st, 1945.
