Product Description: This Feldherrnhalle Cuff Title is a nice example of this hard-to-find piece of insignia. This one is made in the so-called RZM pattern, with silver wire lettering and borders, woven with brown rayon. It features the word “Feldherrnhalle” in Sütterlin style gothic script. It is full length, with unfinished ends. There are no evident stitch holes, no indicators that this piece was ever sewn to a uniform sleeve, The reverse shows textbook details of the woven construction. Despite being unissued, this piece does snow some light snags to some areas of the cuff, with some small holes and breaks to the aluminum flat wire borders. It remains complete, and displays nicely. The condition of this rare Feldherrnhalle Cuff Title rates as excellent.




Historical Description: Cuff titles (Ärmelstreifen) are uniform accoutrements that have been used in the German military since the 19thcentury. Intended to foster a certain sense of ‘esprit de corps’ amongst members of the armed forces, they were authorized for wear by members of designated units for the duration of their service time within that unit. In the event of transfer out of the unit, the cuff title was to be removed from the service member’s uniform. During the Third Reich, the German military continued this tradition by instituting honorary cuff titles to certain ‘special’ formations. This practice is perhaps most well-known for its application amongst Waffen- ϟϟ units. Cuff titles were also authorized for wear within all branches of the Wehrmacht (Army, Air Force and Navy) as well. These unit-specific cuff titles are not to be confused with others, which were awarded for participation in a certain campaign. The tradition, within the German military of wearing cuff titles, continues into the 21st century with certain honor guard contingents of the Bundeswehr being permitted to wear unit-specific cuff titles.
