Anyone have insight as to authenticity on these?
To me they look ok as far as i can tell but wait for the SS guys to comment

I can't seem to find the past thread, but an unissued pair of a near identical set also being of the rank Oberscharführer was shown not too long ago elsewhere. At first the set received raved reviews, but shorty after were dismissed by the majority as being copies(though no evidence was shown to prove this).
I honestly don't know if they're real, nor do I think you'll find the answer you're looking for, at least not a definitive one as it has positive characteristics such as it's material and negative such as the size of the runes. If you ask politely, maybe FB will contact Mr. Delich for you who knows these things better than most. Otherwise I predict we'll see a bunch of one liners like "not for me" or "good set" from guessing minds such as myself.
I see the WAF is already posting their "gut instinct". Not that helpful in my opinion.
I like the runes.
Appreciate your feedback gents! I received slightly closer photos from the seller. I worked them in Photoshop to bring in addl. detail. More thoughts?
Embroidery looks good to me, such as the images are...You'll want to examine the badge cloth and the wear to the alu wire in hand, of course.
They are original to me too.
