A nice original one.
Most of the time something like this is going under the table and even not offered on a website.
Look for another numbered one, hard to find and the Arabic numbers are harder to get then the roman numbers I II III.
And for my view EM is even harder to find then bullion with the Arabic numbers.
I do not, other than the luck I had with one nice piece.

Mr. Robert Hassler,
Thank you for your reply.It is very good to know for sure the tab is authentic.Even better that it is rare and seldom offered for sale.Almost six thousands dollars is a lot of money for sure but one must realize that there are no bargains in such stuff.
Many thanks for your advise and for sharing some pieces of your wonderful collection.
I have been rereading Snydor and Mollo #4 to brush up on SS-TK after posting this photo. In case anyone is interested the photo is from a book related to the Sudetan operation. According to Mollo #4 p13 the first and second bat. of 1st TKstandarte Oberbayern took part as an element of the SS-VT. Sep 1938. Thanks
Thank you jHAM for posting the photograph and for following up on it. The period caption is interesting as it refers to the capture of 'Ascher Land' which i believe was the term for Bohemia, ( I'm sure HPL will correct me if I'm wrong). Many documents indicate that the Oberbayern participation was originally a clandestine one as they entered the Sudetenland ahead of the occupation.
The collar patch appears to be for the 1st Hundertschaft but the collar patch may well show a Roman numeral I.
