    The collar patch emblem in picture no. 6 is definitely an Edelweiß flower design, but it looks different from other known examples of the collar patch as used by the 87th SS-Standarte and the XXXVIth SS-Abschnitt. Actually, I wonder if this could be a metal version.
    Andrew Mollo illustrates what appears to a metal version in Vol. I of his "Uniforms of the SS" series and below is a comparison with an example that was discussed on one of the other forums; if I recall correctly, no definitive judgment was found on whether it was genuine or not. (Please note that I do not own this item.)
    The Edelweiss, worn in this picture and seen with the patch, is the official RAD form.
    The obverse form was introduced July 12, 1938 and was to be worn with the RAD
    "Robin Hood"-cap in all Austrian RAD-districts. In later years the flower was turned
    the other way around and was worn as such since about 1939.

    Here some images from volume 5 from the series "Headgear of Hitler's Germany"

    and yes, the expression "Fuss" was also in use within the SA. See enclosed copy
    from a part of a regulation, as published in the "Verordnungsblatt der OSAF" from
    July 1, 1939 in relation with the changing for insignia.
