WW2 German Waffen-SS 1st SS Panzer Division Leibstandarte Adolf Hitler bevo Cuff Title.
This is an excellent unissued example of an Adolf Hitler script Cuff Title, as worn by the 1st SS Panzer Division “Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler”. It shows no signs of ever having been attached to a uniform. It is woven from black and gray thread in the typical German “BeVo” style.
The title was given to this elite unit in 1933 after the failed yet famed Beer Hall Putsche. The LSSAH were the first unit to have been awarded the honorary cuff title, originally in Gothic text until 1934, when it was changed to the Sutterlin Script, which continued until the end of the Second World War. The Titles were used on many tunics from the Allgemeine tunic, field tunics, Panzer wraps and Greatcoats.
Machine embroidered with grey thread for the enlisted men of the Leibstandarte SS Adolf AH. The title would have been worn on the left sleeve of the tunic approximately 15cm from the edge of the cuff. The cuff measures 49 cm, marked with bevo wuppertal and in unworn condition with some light soiling spots.
