Waffen-SS BEVO 3. SS Division &quotTotenkopf" Cuff Title

Waffen-SS BEVO 3. SS Division "Totenkopf" Cuff Title.

 

Thedor Eicke, the commander of Waffen-SS Totenkopf Division was killed on 26 February 1943 during the opening stages of the Third Battle of Kharkov, when his reconnaissance aircraft was shot down by flak of the Red Army. Soon after his death the 'Theodor Eicke' commemorative SS cuff title was introduced in March 1943.

 

This is a rare version with White embroidery instead of the much more common silver/grey. Widely refered to the "officer version" among collectors.

 

Full-length, 47cm. Machine woven black rayon construction cufftitle with BeVo machine woven script "Theodor Eicke" in white threads. The cuff title is bordered at both the top and bottom with White threads. Folded, machine sewn ends with the manufacturer's name and location embroidered to one side "BEVO WUPPERTAL". The cufftitle has the typical "salt & pepper" patterned reverse. The cuff title is in very good condition with minor signs of age and storage wear.

 

Very rare cuff title for the infamous SS-Totenkopf division!!
