Waffen-SS 'Croatian' Volunteer's Collar Tab


Waffen-SS Collar Tab (Kragenspiegel) as intended for a member within the '13.Waffen-Gebirgs-Division der SS "Handschar" (Kroatische Nr.1)'. As with other foreign volunteer units the Germans devised and produced special insignia intended for soldiers of the '13.Waffen-Gebirgs-Division der SS "Handschar" (Kroatische Nr.1)'. On 30 April 1943, while the division was forming, authorization was given for the introduction of a distinctive collar tab to be worn by all divisional personnel. The name "Handschar" refers to the scimitar featured on the collar tab, 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 and two small holes from being pinned to a board once. Nice original SS Croatian Volunteer's Collar-Tab!
