Superb - and full length! - 1943/44 pattern, Waffen-SS cuff-title (ie. 'Ärmelstreifen') as was intended for a member of the: '18. SS Freiwilligen Panzer Grenadier Division “Horst Wessel”
This is a very attractive - and naturally 100% original! - 1943/44 pattern, Waffen-SS cuff-title (ie. 'Ärmelstreifen') depicting the machine-woven 'Latin'-script text in silver-grey linnen as was specifically intended for a member who served within the: '18. SS Freiwilligen Panzer Grenadier Division “Horst Wessel” and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. simply never worn- nor tunic-attached- ie. 'virtually mint'-), condition. The non-shortened- ie. full length cuff-title (that measures approx. 43 cms in length.) has the typical 'salt and pepper'-reverse and shows all details of an original, period specimen. This band was with certainty produced by the 'Bandfabrik Ewald Vorsteher' (ie. 'BeVo') in Wuppertal but is void of the interwoven company-name on one of its ends (something that is more often seen). This cuff-title is a 100% text-book - and as stated above - original example that originates from a US-veteran who 'liberated' this piece in 1945. The piece shows some truly minimal staining and age but will be very hard to be upgraded (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a great opportunity to acquire a very attractive, Waffen-SS 'BeVo'-type cuff-title for a competitive price!
