    That has always confused me as well. I've heard several stories when it comes to which letter should be present and why it is so. May be someone can comment further on that, I am quite interested myself.
    I found this info just now....


    "The upper left letter is for complexity. A is for simple and F for more advanced. Letter L is further advanced work. Hence A is found on BeVo eagles and often on some blank rank tabs. B is found on Enlisted rune tabs and some cuff titles. C is commonly found on bullion rune tabs and some cuff titles. D on SS VT tabs and some swas arm bands. F is found on Generals tabs and bullion skull tabs and on some bullion embroidery cuff titles. H is found on bullion sleeve eagles. L is found on cape eagles. M is found on SS officers brocade belts."

    I always find these sort of items a minefield.

    This information requires levying against a reliable primary source.

    I am not an expert in wartime insignia, but the Schulterstuecke in the original post seem original to me. However, it is not impossible that police badges are re worked as SD ones with dye, which does not appear to be the case with this item. I think the Whammond site has some of these, as well.....

    I am a fanatical enemy of gun show lore about the RZM that is usually based on hot air.

ID:	529404Thanks. With apologies to my colleague Whammond, here are two shoulder board sets from his site.

    The RZM levied a series of operating fees of various kinds from the contractor and apparently for the regulated item itself, which are wrongly described as "taxes" on other sites, especially the lords of the flies one.
    I have never seen an original, single description of all these fees in their variety, but I am not at all convinced that the received wisdom associated with this aspect of the RZM is at all correct.
    Wim Saris would know, and there is a fine website in Mitteldeutschland, which I have appended, which also contains worthwhile material.
    damit, basta.

    I owned an open collar field grey tunic stripped of insignia forty years ago that would have well taken such insignia.
    I own three SD/Sipo black uniforms.
    damit, basta.
