    whole whack of stuff... think this gold and silver buyer purchesed this whole collection for a bulk price, many pieces were easily spoted fakes even from a 15 year old beginer (myself). I will post a few pics later on of booths he had set up in his shop and its contents.

    in the 3rd photo you see two orange dots poking out from the side, this is where the ribbon has been cut and the inside material. 4th (next) photo shows how the other ribbon was cut on the other side. after taking a close look I would say it was most likley cut while still on tunic.

    Agreed! I was telling my wife earlier, "Man, my fellow collectors and I are really geeking out over this one collar tab!"
    These geeking, nit picking examinations are the driving force, behind why so many of our esteemed collectors here on the WRF excel in knowledge. I applaud this and Im surrounded by greatness
    Keep up the great work "All" of you are doing here to preserve history. Regards Larry

    To me, it appears the original owner was of the rank SS-Hauptscharführer when he first had his uniform constructed. Obviously, during the period he could've been promoted to the rank of SS-Sturmscharführer and would've had to apply the extra silver/aluminum tress to the exterior of the tab. It's possible he could've left the tab on the tunic when applying it, for the simple reason of convenience, thus it wouldn't of been stitched to the reverse such as the first one. Then once promoted to SS-Untersturmführer, he would've removed all of the tress from the tab leaving the space on the left we see today and only the remnants of one strip of tress on the backside. The fact remnants do remain only adds to the validity of the idea this tab is not only correct, but also a period promoted/altered example.
    Personally, I think a likelier promotion scenario is the regular progression through the officer candidate ranks up to commissioning.

    A Standartenoberjunker-ranked officer school graduate would have worn a rank tab with two pips, one strip of lace ( like a Hauptscharführer) and officers' cord piping.

    Upon promotion to Untersturmführer, he could have upgraded his rank patch by removing the lace and adding a pip.

ID:	819050 Unfortunatly we will probably never know the truth of this tab,my buddy looked through paperwork, nothing seems to be SS. Here I have attached what was on display for sale due to a request. I belive not everything is authentic but for the most part everything pictured came from the same collection (ww2 doctor) as I stated earlier.
