    Phil Baker discusses this type of tab in YLBY (volume 3 I think). I discussed Steve's tab with him since I had initially thought it might even be the very tab illustrated (seemingly not since there are a few small differences). Anyway, Phil Baker relayed to me how he had asked Axmann himself about them. Axmann confirmed that he had never worn such a tab. The final nail in the coffin!

    For those that have the new Saris book, these tabs are discussed there too (with a nod to Phil Baker's earlier writings). A genuine Axmann tab is also shown; the quality is far superior.

    very interesting info. The tab show appears very nice but obviously must be in hand to make the call

    ABSOLUTELY either make yourself an expert before buying or run it through the forum where the red flags will be hoisted

    Another example of this tab has surfaced. Appears very close to the tab at the start of this thread. Not the same tab but obvious to me made by the same hand.

    PLEASE HELP with COLLAR TABS - Militaria Forums
