Original German WWII Embroidered Croatian Waffen SS Checkerboard Shield Sleeve Insignia

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Here we have an excellent condition embroidered Croatian SS red and white checkerboard shield insignia. This is the coat of arms of Croatia, and was worn by members of the 13th Waffen SS Mountain Division "Handschar" (1st Croatian) and 23rd Waffen Mountain Division of the SS Kama (2nd Croatian). The insignia measures approximately 2 1/2" x 2", and is embroidered onto black "Badge cloth. These were usually sewn to the sleeve of the uniform.

We have heard that many of these were made at the Dachau camp, and many unissued examples were recovered at the end of the war when the camp was liberated. There is however no concrete evidence regarding this.

The insignia is in excellent condition, most likely unissued, and was never attached to a uniform. Ready to add to your collection!
