This rare sword knot was carried by officers serving with General Vlasov's army, which the Germans raised in 1944 from Russian volunteers (former prisoners of war) to help them in their struggle against Communism. The colours are the old Imperial Russian colours. The acronym of this unit was POA.

Details of this unit can be found in Andrew Mollo's book, 'German Uniforms of World War 2', and in other more recent publications on the Ostvolk Volunteer scenario.

The condition is excellent for its age, but the colours of the cotton threads of the leather strap are somewhat dulled.

testimonials

[From a vendor, rather than a buyer]

I'm delighted that you are happy with the badge and I hope you can sell it to someone who will value owning it.

I tried to sell it on eBay but they won't accept Nazi items. I then contacted several dealers via a Google search who mostly offered me 40-50 after some haggling. Most of the other dealers tried to conceal its true value in their replies and also lacked manners which doesn't inspire confidence.

Ultimately it's about trust. I should think that most prospective sellers have done their own research and therefore know roughly what their item is worth. You were the only dealer who had the integrity to concede that my valuation was approximately correct and I respect your comment that you can't offer this as you need to make a profit. Your honest approach is greatly appreciated and I felt comfortable taking the risk in sending it to you.

Thank you for a smooth transaction
