    Default Study of SS rank tab

    This was posted elsewhere, and I thought it could be used here for educational purposes, both for teaching and learning. It's a invaluable example in my opinion, due to what the moth has done, for the studying of the separate layers, materials, and construction of these tabs. Hope it proves helpful to insignia collectors alike.

    Note the usually hidden details, different types of materials, their properties, and how they are constructed to the tab, especially in the areas one is usually unable to see in an mint example.

    Interesting how the piping ends are stitched and how the pips prongs do not come through the both layers. All hand stitched also-no machining at all. And, are the pips supposed to be turned in the directions that they are-particularly the middle one?

    It's interesting to me that the prongs of the pips don't go all the way through...is this standard or perhaps custom-made? SS Rank has always been a challenge for my eyes...
    cheers, Glenn

    I forgot to add that the reserve picture is the rank tabs counter-part. There wasn't a picture of the rank tabs reverse posted, so I used that for reference. Sorry for any confusion.

    The front of the back shown in the initial post. Again, sorry for any misunderstanding. They are, however, a matching set.

    The pipings was normally added by soldiers, or by professional tailors, being the uniforms was assembled. Nothing strange, that tailors not a sewing machines with markings on the hands- approved by RZM, due of that- different techs
