Dutch/Germanic SS standaard II numbered collar tab
Very rare Dutch/Germanic SS collar tab from “Standaard II” which was from the Gelderland and Overijssel area with the headquarters in Arnhem. On paper these “Standaard” units consisted of at least 1500 men, but in reality due to the constant flow off SS-men to the Waffen-SS, a “Standaard” unit only consisted of approximately 130 men. This indicates how very rare these collar tabs are! This collar tab was for the ranks “SS-Maat” (SS-Schütze) to “Hoofschaarleider” (Hauptscharführer). The collar tab is in an outstanding condition, and still retains its original RZM label on the back. This is the first one I have ever encountered and had the pleasure to offer!
