BACKGROUND: The 4. SS-Polizei-Panzer-Grenadier-Division was originally formed as the Polizei-Division by order of September 18TH 1939, with the personnel drawn mainly from the Ordnungspolizei, (Order Police). On its formation it wasn’t considered a true SS Division, but after proving itself in combat, it was accepted as a full SS Division on February 10TH 1942 and given the designation, "SS-Polizei-Division". On April 15TH 1942 divisional personnel were authorized wear of a cufftitle with the standard police emblem of a national eagle encompassed by an oak-leaf wreath. On December 1ST 1942 a newly designed, second pattern cufftitle was introduced with the RZM style, machine embroidered script, "SS-Polizei-Division", for EM/NCOs and a woven silver/aluminum flat-wire version for Officers. In early 1943 a machine woven BeVo version was also introduced for wear. Of Note: In September 1943, the division was given its final designation as, 4.SS-Polizei-Panzer-Grenadier-Division.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: RZM pattern, black rayon cufftitle with machine embroidered Latin script and SS runes, "SS-Polizei-Division", in pearl/grey threads. Cufftitle is bordered at top and bottom edges in seven strand, horizontally woven silver/aluminum threads. Rare cufftitle!
