Armshield badge of the Albanian volunteers in the 21st Mountain Division ("Waffen Gebirgs Division") of the Waffen-SS, 'Skanderbeg', 1944. The second division of Muslim volunteers (after the 13th Croatian "Handschar" and before the 23rd Croatian "Kama" Division), Skanderbeg was formed in Kosovo in the summer of 1944 and numbered 6,500 volunteers by September. Assigned to anti-partisan duties, the unit suffered mass desertions and numbered only 1,300 by October of that year, and was subsequently disbanded. The badge is in excellent, preserved condition with black borders (in the Waffen-SS style) and with black cloth backing (with two dots of glue from where the badge was originally mounted in a book).
