Uniform Removed 13th Waffen-SS Gebirgs Division Collar Tab – (Handschar)


Categories: ,


Textbook example of a 18th Waffen-SS Grenadier Division collar tab. On February 10th 1943 a new Waffen-SS Division to be manned by volunteers from the Independent State of Croatia. This new division would eventually evolve into the 13th Waffen-Gebirgs-Division der SS “Handschar” (kroat.Nr.1), and was primarily manned from Muslims from the Bosnia-Herzegovina region of Croatia. Non Germanic SS volunteers were not authorized to wear the SS runic tab, they were assigned specific national emblem tabs. This example is fantastic with great detail and no issues what so ever, it shows clear signs of being worn during the period and removed from a uniform, rather hard piece to find in a worn condition!
