Superb, 1943/44 pattern Waffen-SS cuff-title, depicting the machine-woven 'Latin'-script text in silver-grey linnen as was intended for a member of the: '9. SS-Panzer-Division' “Hohenstaufen”
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 intended for a member serving within the: '9. SS-Panzer-Division' “Hohenstaufen” and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. probably issued- albeit never tunic-attached- ie. 'virtually mint'), condition. The full-length cuff-title (that measures approx. 47,3 cms. as more often) has the typical 'salt and pepper'-type 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 something that can be further corroborated by the interwoven company-name on one of its ends (something that is more often but not always 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 was most certainly never tunic-attached: it does, however, show some storage-age and or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). Simply a great opportunity to acquire a very attractive and actually quite rarely encountered, Waffen-SS 'BeVo'-type cuff-title for a competitive price!
