G3111-10 SS Auxililiary Security Police Cap Insignia, Officer Grade

This cap insignia is for an officer in the SS Auxiliary Security Police, or Schuma Battalions.

This insignia is woven in metallic thread (flatwire) on a black artificial silk background. The base cloth is also black artificial silk. It measures 2" hi x 31 3/4" and is uncut, near mint. Enlisted men and non-coms wore BeVo versions (machine woven).

Note: The flatwire on originals of this insignia is dull gray, not shiny bright as most other flatwire insignia. I believe this is due to the specific aluminum alloy used for the thread being highly susceptible to surface corrosion from atmospheric contaminants.
