Wonderful and beyond-rare flatwire Niederlande officer's cufftitle which came from the widow of a veteran of SS-Frw.Pz.Gren.Rgt. 48 "General Seyffardt", part of the 4. SS-Frw.Pz.Gren.Brig. "Nederland".
Originally an "Frw.Legion Niederlande" cufftitle, it was cut by the veteran, because the Dutch Legion was disbanded in 1943 and its cufftitles abolished. There exists a picture of a very similar cut Niederlande flatwire cufftitle worn by an officer of the Dutch SS Brigade. In decades of collecting, this is the only example of this cufftitle we have ever seen offered for sale.
The name of the veteran will be provided to the buyer. What makes it even more unique, is that the unit to which the veteran belonged, was completely destroyed in July 1944. A museum-quality piece.
