Quiz...SS GF COLLAR TABS

Article about: Hi All, what's wrong with these original GF COLLAR TABS? Regards SK

    Thanks for the kind words. My expertise is very limited to certain things in the years more or less 1932 until about 1939. Far be it from me to pick a fight with a dealer, which I usually go to great lengths to avoid. However, I venerate Dave Delich, and I correspond with him weekly, and I enlisted him to offer his very considerable experience to this site.

    As Bob says, you have to examine these things in hand. The pictures are misleading. Anything hand made is naturally a Unikat.

    Perhaps others did not respond to the original thread because they esteem Thies, upon whom I pass no assessment with this intervention at all. I refrain from the trope of benighted collector versus venomous dealer.

    My motto is "mutual aid and self help," with the imperative on the latter. That is, the collector has the duty to inform him or herself, and to do so well.

    I wish only to trouble and otherwise vex those who prevent others from learning, who willfully spread disinformation, who waste the time of the innocent and who embarrass themselves and us with their sloppiness and laziness.

    Hi, not my area at all but what I will say is that Freidrich is one of the VERY best, I for one have been blessed in seeing and reading his posts, many of which show David's unique collection. All I will say on the above item is that I do not like the positioning of the "pip" to the oak leave. The piece also looks to have a false attempt to give the impression of light mothing too. Leon.

    It took me a while to figure out what the "GF" in the title of this thread meant as the word is Gruppenfuhrer. Today, collectors too often have a tendency to abbreviate terminology as if they are writing a text message. No insult intended to Silberkreuz. Being of a generation not use to communicating in this manner, it becomes in my mind confusing and inaccurate.

ID:	734380The collector argot that makes me insane is "M32" to describe the black SS tunic, for instance.

    In text-speak these days 'GF' usually is translated as 'girlfriend'. A thread referring to an SS girlfriend is one sure to gain my attention.
