Thank you very much for all the interesting Inputs gentlemen!
Greetings. Its always nice to see original and rare items, but as much as I like them, the bullion embroidery in cuff titles never reaches the artistic heights as in numbered Allgemeine collar tabs which are woven like a perfect spider web.
Thanks to you, Mr. JHAM. I must confess that much of this baffles me.
Interesting to see a genuine example. Sammellager-Lichtenberg had many notable staff, including Theodor Eicke, Karl Koch, Arthur Liebehenschel, Max Koegel, Egon Zill and Maria Mandl.
Currently working on several KZ related projects, including items for the USHMM, Groß-Rosen Museum and various private concerns and studies. Available as a guide to KZ sites, contact for details.

Thank you for posting the photograph jHam. It illustrates the quandary well. It is impossible to tell from the title alone what element the man is assigned to. I suspect from the Race and Settlement diamond that the man in this case is assigned to the SS-Oberabschnitt Elbe.
If you are still perplexed than I wonder what hope the rest of us have. As always I am grateful for your participation here.
I also think the RuSHA diamond likely indicates a member on the staff of SS-Oberabschnitt Elbe. Below is another photo to ponder. Thank you as well. I look forward to your posts.
What a fine fraternity we have here.
