FOREIGN WORKER'S "OST" PATCH WITH I.D. CARD
Fabric patch, 3" square, printed with two concentric blue squares with the title "Ost" ("East") at center. Patches of this design were sewn to the clothing of foreign "guest" workers in Germany, identifying them as having come from conquered areas of Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. Present with this example is an identification card, 2pp. oblong 8vo., for just such a worker, a Michael Harbus from the vicinity of Kiev. The card bears its owner's thumbprints and identity photo, which clearly shows a patch of the style presented here sewn to his right breast. The patch shows slight soiling, with very slight wear to the identity card, else very good.
