    Default Tracing a Waffen SS-Obergruppenführer shoulder board

    Back in the early 80s I acquired some Waffen-SS-Obergruppenführer insignia from the daughter of a veteran, consisting of a single collar tab, a single tunic board, a single overcoat board, wire-embroidered SS officer eagle, and a wire-embroidered sleeveband ("Nordwest", as I remember). I also got a pair of foreign volunteer collar insignia. I could never ID the sleeveband, but I believe it was for one of the SS recruiting districts.

    Around 1984-85, I traded these items (except for the officer eagle) to George Petersen for a German para smock and para trousers. I was very anal at the time, and was not prone to keep incomplete sets of insignia. (!!!!!)

    Yesterday, I visited Ulric of England's site, and saw that he had sold a single Waffen-SS-Obergruppenführer large board (Overcoat I presume), from the George Petersen collection. It certainly looked like the one that I had traded to George. I was wondering if any of the members here ended up with these items?
