    Default SS collar tabs

    can anyone shed a light on what these are they are described as follows.

    'They are basically one-third smaller than a standard set. They are extremely well made and sport a nice set of machine embroidered runes. They have the buckram material with a coloured shellac to hold the wool and the backing in place.'

    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

    If they are smaller than standard tabs, I guess it is possible that these were made for a child. I have seen other miniature insignia which were claimed to be for that purpose and supposedly original to the period. I have also seen children's helmets for playing war.

    Agreed, anything is possible, however, I have a child's helmet, and the decals, although half the size of originals, are perfect in every detail, these tabs look a little offset, but as I said, anythings possible

    I have just seen these tonight on a website. I believe they were being sold as childrens tabs. I think the runes on the set I viewed were much closer to the real thing.
