    I thought Nordland was a sunwheel swastika.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Looks like a good Charlemagne tab to me, probably Dachau made

    They were never issued apparently so they are a contentious issue

    Here is a good one for comparison

    Gunny, I have seen the sun wheel pattern you are talking about but I thought it may be a later pattern? Yes totenhead, it is a dachau made tab. The dealer wants $300 which I feel is a fair price.

    For your interest

    " The Jean d'Arc collar tab was intended to be the collar patch for the Charlemagne Division. However the veterans of the 1943 SS Sturmbrigade Frankreich rejected it as it was too "Catholic" or religious and wanted the SS runes to remain since for them, the SS runes signifies a common "European" bond (in the perspective of the Sturmbrigade French veterans)

    The Celtic Cross was the 2nd design (I was informed that it was a "t" in a circle rather than an "x") to placate the Charlemagne troopers from the LVF faction, rather than the Sturmbrigade ones and one possible reason is that it was also considered as a pagan symbol as well as a religious symbol "
