Oberschutze Rank Star Waffen-SS/Panzer on black cloth
WW2 German Repro SS/Army Panzer Oberschutze star on black cloth.
December, 1920, the Reichsheer had brought in a new rank and insignia for Enlisted Men (EM) called the Oberschutze. The Allgemeine- SS adopted this rank in 1938 with the Waffen-SS also adopting it later in 1939.
Originally the patch was made on field grey wool followed by bottle green wool. In 1940 new orders dictated that the patch should match the colour of the tunic worn, in this instance, this particular patch would have been worn by the Allgemeine-SS on their M32 tunics and by Panzer troops on the Panzer/ Stug wraps.
Reproduction Oberschutze rank star on black wool base with machine embroidered rank star.
