    I think you want to distinguish between the SS Verfuegungstruppe and the SS Totenkopfverbaende, do you not? Also the company size units in the SSTV were called Hundertschaften, not Stuerme.

    SSTV hand embroidery is a world onto itself. I am no expert, as I own exactly one item of this type attached to a black tunic which has sound provenance.
    In this case, I would turn to Bob Hritz and to Robert Hassler for an expert view, and, of course, as always, no one can say solely based on these images alone.
    The same goes for the uniform from this source that you want. You cannot really say 100% without looking at it in hand.
    If others offer a windy opinion on a complicated woolen or whatever item via a computer image alone, you are not really receiving anything other than a cursory opinion.
    damit, basta.

    My first impression is also positive, but I have read so many postings about refined fakes that I am always cautious. This price is one third of the entire cost of the tunic I own....go figure.
    damit, basta.

    Dear Jose, thank you, but I really am out of my depth with these, save that I do own some SS embroidery likely made by similar or the same firms. But each of these was unique, that is, each thing that is hand made is naturally different in subtle ways. The two men whose name I mentioned have specialized in all of this, as has my mentor, David Delich.
    I would approach any SSTV material with double caution.
    damit, basta.

    F-B is certainly correct in attributing this insignia to the SS-TV and not the SS-VT and I thank him for his contribution here. I offer this photo as evidence of the cross over in these units as the SS-VT enlarged and began to encorporate elements of the SS-TV. Is it any wonder we are still confused about these things.
