Rare Waffen-SS Caucasian Volunteer's Collar Tab

Description

Waffen-SS Collar Tab (Kragenspiegel) as intended for a member within the 'Kaukasischen Waffen-Verbandes der SS'. As with other foreign volunteer units the Germans devised and produced special insignia intended for soldiers of the 'Kaukasischen Waffen-Verbandes der SS'. The unit was instituted by an order of 30 December 1944 and was made up of four eastern groups: Armenians, Azerbaidzhanians, Georgians and volunteers from the North Caucasus. A right collar tab depicting a sword and a shield was assigned to this unit. The collar tab is embroidered in silver/grey thread on black wool. The collar tab is having a nice light-brown, coloured 'Buckram' backing. The collar-tab originates almost certainly from the SS clothing department at the Dachau KZ when liberated in 1945. The collar-tab is in good unissued condition with some minor staining caused by years of storage. Extremely rare Caucasian Volunteer Collar Tab in mint and unissued condition!
