Product Description: This Hermann Göring Cuff Title is an outstanding, unissued example of this very desirable piece of regalia for an elite Luftwaffe unit. This is a post-1942 pattern, worn by members of the Division Hermann Göring and eventually by the Fallschirm-Panzerkorps Hermann Göring. This cuff title is made from a top quality wool fabric, and measures about 18″ long and 1-3/4″ wide. The blue wool retains strong original color, with no fading. The cuff title is emblazoned with the wording “Hermann Göring,” factory machine embroidered in capital Latin letters in a slightly grayish-white thread. The embroidery is perfect, with no issues. The reverse of this Hermann Göring Cuff Title shows typical folded and stitched edges, and the mesh backing for the embroidery. This cuff title is virtually pristine, with no stitch holes or other traces of ever having been affixed to a uniform. It is full length, and shows absolutely zero mothing or other damage. It’s extremely fresh and would likely be impossible to upgrade. The condition rates as near mint.
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.
