  • Cap insignia
  • Officer and soldier type belt buckles

    It includes a wide range of ranks from SS-Schütze to SS-Obersturmbannführer.

    For maximum detail separate shoulder tab buttons are provided.

    Collar runes for 3.SS-Pz.Div., 7.SS-Gebrigs.Div, 11.SS-Pz.Gren.Div., 19.SS-Pz.Gren.Div. and 20.SS-Pz.Gren.Div. are included.
    Highs: High quality PE, good how to use guide and a high variety of ranks and insignia.

    I appreciate etched insignias.
