Basically three different fonts were used Gothic, Latin or Sütterlin style script.
Block letters were also used. Some cuff titles were made in two different types of script, SS-Standarte Germania, SS-Standarte Der Führer
both made in a 1st pattern Gothic, and a 2nd pattern in Latin script.

It was more usual Gothic script in Allgemeine-SS cuff titles than in Waffen-SS, where Latin lettering was widely used.

For "Typografie im Nationalsozialismus" I would like to recommend this book:

NSCI – Das Erscheinungsbild der Nationalsozialisten https://www.designtagebuch.de/nsci-das- ... zialisten/

NSCI – Andreas Koop
Das visuelle Erscheinungsbild der Nationalsozialisten 1925 – 1945

152 Seiten mit ca. 300 meist farbigen Abbildungen
Verlag Hermann Schmidt
ISBN 978-3-87439-768-1
29,80 EUR

Very recommended!

Mark, what a bunch of nonsense, sorry!
Another Internet-Shop for "Fans", not for collectors, sorry.
Screwed up with some historical photos, which were probably also copied somewhere, this whole "store" is one big laughing stock.
