I think you might have a hard time selling this one to a serious collector because none of the BeVo or, rather, BeVo-style Italian SS arm eagles that have cropped up on the market from time to time are accepted as period pieces. That said, the Italien cuff title of which only a handful of examples with provenance are known was of BeVo-style construction and made in Italy so it is not beyond belief that an Italian firm tendering for the contract to supply these insignia might have tooled up and produced a roll for evaluation purposes. However, the Italian SS Legion wore embroidered arm eagles, made in the Italian style. both on red and black backing. There are no period photographs showing anything like this in wear.
