Default SS white tunic

What do u guys think of these? SS summer tunic,They have a matching SA one with the same school tyr rune..would both these leadership tyr patches be the same for SS and SA white backing..? Or did someone creatively rebadge these ? Links to both.. Just odd 2 white tunics same site,same the raute.Not uncommon to see this tyr rune on summer whites but.,

The white SS tunic was originally a SA tunic, converted to SS.
The Tyr badge was also added.
This information comes from a reliable source, big and well known collector.

I see it's Brian Maederer's site. He's been around a long time and his prices were always "ambitious".


What's this plastic looking Edelweiss on an SS M43 cap?

The issue is that it was originally a SA tunic.

It's not plastic but aluminium. This type is not normally used it this fashion but it's possible.

Just commenting on why the prices are for what it's supposed to be,not what the actual value is.

You are absolutely correct Robert! I thought the same thing the minute I saw the price. For a nice untouched white SS Tunic, $14,000 is an unreasonably low price. Brian would not be giving anything away at that type of bargain.
