Default Strange Germania cuff

I actually think this may be period done- not sure what the supply was like but this is a genuine blank cuff band hand embroidered in thick cotton thread that has been worn and tunic removed.
I know everyone will scream fake and that such a thing could never exist in the Waffen SS elite divisions but strange things did sometimes happen

Might be interesting for some

Best regards and stay healthy!

Patrick

Fake or "unknown variant", it wouldn't be for my collection.

Without any provenance, that can be confirmed, it is a worthless cufftitle.

It is hand embroidered , and not very well done either, which of course we know was not the norm.
As said, strange things did happen, but without proof of provenance, something like this can only be disregarded unfortunately.
