Hey guys, dumb question. I know next to nothing about cuff titles but I am putting together a RMBO/diplomatic insignia display. I see in period pics that RMBO wore a "OST" cuff title. For the last month or so I have scanned pretty much all of the main dealer's sites but have never seen one for sale. Are these a rare title, and if they do come up for sale what can I expect to pay for one? thanks guys.

The Collector's Guild sold a silver on black "Ost" cuff title recently for $615. It's still on their site.

Yup, just saw that one the other day. H.Weitze (sp?) over in Europe had one for over $1600....So I guess they kind run the gamut on pricing....the hunt goes on...Thanks Vern

Hello, to my best knowledge (but I am no uniform guy) the cuff title "Ost" and the RMBO are two different things. I have a lot of photographs with the ""Ost" cufftitle, eg Bahnschutz (rrpp), Staatsbeamte (gov.), Postschutz (postal protection) and Forst (forest) but none of them is member of the RMBO (Reichsministerium f?r die besetzten Ostgebiete) whose mebers had very special and distinct uniforms (and eagles).
Please correct me when I am wrong.
