    Default SS mess dress badge

    Hey all,

    Finally got this picture up today;

    Below is an item a fellow collector is selling and I was wondering if it is indeed authentic.

    From my personal knowledge I'm quite sure it is but one can never be to careful.



    Thanks,

    Empereur.

    a 2d image. I do not have an image of the back, but it is totally different than the fake piece at the head of this thread.
    There has never been an accurate fake made of this badge due to the fact that there has never been a published photograph of the reverse of this rare badge. I believe the one Herr Berthold is showing is an original example that was found at the S O S in the midst of a plethera of fake
    S S insignia. A lucky individual got it for $25.00. I later bought it at a far higher price.

    Just a side note, wouldn't it be more appropriate with Allgemeine SS as headline to this thread?

    This breast badge was worn by both Waffen and Allgemeine SS, as you shall see if you look at the page I included from the SS Kleiderkasse catalog.

    This being said, I do not imagine that the formal suit for polite society was frequently worn by soldiers much as the war progressed.

    However, I enclose an image of SS Junker and I think Fegelein wearing the suit....
