This is the very unique SS arm eagle that was created specifically for wear only by Sepp Dietrich. SS regulation required that all SS officers and Generals wear aluminum or silver embroidered eagles on their uniforms. Dietrich, for whatever reason, chose to have special insignia made utilizing gold embroidery.
Another unique and personality defining element of Dietrich’s insignia was his use of a gold embroidered regimental cuff title. To achieve this, a standard officer’s aluminum cuff title was used as a template, and then gold bullion thread was embroidered.
