Waffen-SS-pattern, black-coloured sleeve-insignia (ie. 'Ärmelabzeichen') depicting an: 'Edelweiss'-flower, as used by the various 'Gebirgsjäger'- (ie. mountain-troops-) related divisional-staff
This is an attractive example of a (typical) Waffen-SS-pattern, black-coloured- and/or (smooth) woolen-based sleeve-insignia (ie. 'Ärmelabzeichen') depicting the famous: 'Edelweiss'-flower as was specifically used by the various 'SS-Gebirgsjäger'- (ie. mountain-troops-) related divisional-staff (such as those of the: 'Prinz Eugen'- ie. 'Skanderbeg'-SS-Divisions) and that comes in an overall very nice- (and I deem never worn nor used-), condition. The piece on offer here is a fully 'text-book'-example that comes in a 'virtually mint- ie. unissued' condition that shows some minimal fraying on its borders: moreover, does it show some minimal glue-residue on its back (simply caused by having been glued into an album or scrapbook (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a very nice and naturally 100% original Waffen-SS arm-badge that almost certainly originated from the 'Dachau' clothing-depots and that will be hard to be upgraded!
