    Hello.
    I've added this little portrait photo of a Allgemeinen-SS Oberscharführer.
    I have observed that the pips on the rank collar tab are vertically and not diagonal.
    I have never seen anything like it,does anyone know if that was in the regulation?
    Thanks.
    Every opinion and comment is welcome.
    Regards, Jannis.

    Jannis,
    Thank you for posting your photo. That collar patch configuration is not a regulation one to the best of my knowledge.
    From the collar patch and double straps your man is a cavalry unit member (Reiterstandarte 13). Some of these pre-war SS cavalry units were essentially riding clubs which had a somewhat relaxed relationship with the SS itself. I suspect the arrangement of the stars is the result of a less than strict observance of the rules.
