Hi guys, a few years ago i bought a box full of cloth patches from a friend of mine who was moving to Thialand. He bought them back in the early 70s, I came across this sleeve eagle and thought at the time that it was just abad repro. That was untill i came across an article of the last model of the enlisted ranks/NCO SS sleeve eagle, being produced in a printed form. These appeared in late 1944 and were intended to be worn on the M-44 short field uniform. These sleeve eagles never reached a high degree of useage. The article had a picture with it and as soon as i saw it i new it was the same. Ive never seen a real one only pictures so ive nothing to compare it with, Its past the black light test but not sure what the burn test is. ( I need your help with this one guys )

I would have doubts about the originality of this piece, as with most SS items.

I thought that too Fritz but this pattern is accepted as an original, but I agree so easy to fake.
