    Default SS FM Honor Pin Document

    Hi All,
    I received this in the mail yesterday and was hoping to get some more opinions on it. It seems to be some sort of document associated with the SS FM honor pin. Does anyone else have one or have they seen one?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I cannot comment on authenticity; but I can tell you what it says. It does indeed concern the SS FM Honor Pin, specifically its institution. The text translates as:


    "The Reichsführer-SS

    Berlin, 1 October 1935

    To the patron members of the
    Schutzstaffel

    6 years ago, when the FM organization was created during the hardest time of political struggle, it was the only possibility to make the Schutzstaffel of the NSDAP viable, thanks to our FM comrades' willingness to make sacrifices.

    In victory and defeat, these German men and women with their sense of sacrifice have remained faithful to the
    Schutzstaffel.

    It is my heartfelt wish to express my gratitude to each and every one of them. This is the only form in which I can do it, for I see no other way.

    In order to give a visible expression of this gratitude, I have decided to award

    an Honor Pin

    to the more senior FM comrades.

    I would like to take this occasion to ask our patron members to keep up their old, tried faithfulness to the
    Schutzstaffel."

    Thank You for the translation! A friend of mine had translated it for me as well and concluded that the script and German text used seemed to be period. From the feedback I have received from other collectors, it seems to be an extremely rare document that many have not seen before!

    Doubtful document. Did Himmler sign anything in black ink? All that I've generally seen of his came in green indelible pencil...

    The document is not a hand signed item but rather a facsimile signature consistent with other documents issued with the Julleuchter, Julkerz, etc.

    As an aside....Himmler signed Honor Ring and Honor Sword docs in black! which sometimes has faded to a brown.
