For sale is an original WW2 German Early 1933-1935 hand embroidery grey cotton threat SS Schutzstaffel Runic EM/NCO Uniform Collar Tab. The earliest SS cloth badges were hand - embroidered , and this form of insignia was worn by soldiers of the armed SS during 1933-5 . Hand - embroidery could be in white or silver - grey cotton thread , fine aluminium wire or heavy silver bullion , with the latter two styles normally being reserved for officers . However , in September 1934 non - commissioned and enlisted ranks of the LAH and SS - VT were also authorised to wear aluminium wire insignia with the black uniform , to set them apart from their colleagues in the Allgemeine - SS . No two hand - embroidered badges were ever identical , since they were individually made . Badge companies generally employed women to do this work , or farmed it out to local seamstresses .
