Hello all,
I am not a cloth collector, but over the years odd pieces have made their way to my collection. A very good friend gave me a small collection of materiel taken by an intelligence officer after D-Day, including a few cut-offs.
Here are a couple of fairly standard collars.
Kerry.

A couple of LW eagles, I am not sure if they are cut-offs or on backing cloth. The flatware was not from the intelligence officer's lot, so I am not 100% sure of it.

Those are some great pieces!

The second Luft eagle is from a FJ smock. The first one is not a cut piece; it is an early pre-war eagle.

The first one is an early eagle but cut off a tunic IMO in the same precise manner as the FJ eagle.

I strongly disagree. Here are the 2 I have left.

What type of uniform have they been removed from? In fact, what uniform uses such soft thin delicate wool?

His is frayed, because the wool is so delicate.

Haven't added anything in a while, so here is recent find. Part of the tunic armpit lining, and pocket stitching are still visible.

At this year's Max Show I was finally able to add this piece to my collection. Thank you Gerry! It is a piece I have known about, and been hoping to get, for years. A fitting tribute as it is likely to be the last piece of cut insignia I am going to add to my collection, after almost 30 years of collecting and studying them.

Early FJ set of tabs machine sewn to a greatcoat collar. Gulls pinned through tabs and collar. From a member of the Regiment General Göring. In December of 1935 the Jäger Batallion (I./RGG) was formed and they were sent Döberitz for parachute training in January of 1936. They wore white tabs with gulls and green piping. In October of 1937 they were renamed the Fallschirmschützen Batallion (IV./RGG). They were then authorized to wear white tabs with gulls and golden yellow piping. Just like my example.That lasted for 5 months, as they were then the transformed into I. Fallschirmjäger Regiment 1 in March of 1938, and wore the standard golden-yellow tabs of Luftwaffe flying formations.
