BACKGROUND: In August 1929 the SS incorporated the wear of rank collar tabs on the left side of the collar of the service tunic. The SS collar tabs were originally adopted from the earlier rank collar tabs as utilized by the SA, Sturmabteilung, (Storm Troops). The SS collar tabs remained in usage through-out the war with a couple of minor alterations. The ranks of SS-Sturmscharführer to SS-Hauptsturmführer inclusively utilized alternating twisted black and silver/aluminum cord piping from May 19TH 1933 until October 24TH 1934 when it was altered to silver/aluminum cord piping.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Second pattern, (circa October 1934), SS-Obersturmführers, left hand side rank collar tab features a black wool base with three natural aluminum rank pips and a narrow strip of woven silver/aluminum tress with an interwoven central black stripe position at the forward edge. The collar tab is trimmed in twisted silver/aluminum piping and is mounted on a tan buckram base. Nice!
