Superb - 'virtually mint- ie. unissued' and fully matching! - pair of later-war-period-, WH (Heeres) so-called: 'M44'-style-, 'simplified', enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps as was intended for a: 'Soldat eines Panzergrenadiere-Rgts.'
This is a very attractive - and fully matching! - pair of later-war-period, WH (Heeres) so-called: 'M44'-style-, 'simplified', enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstraps as was piped in the neat bright-green- (ie. 'wiesen- o. hellgrüner'-) coloured branchcolour as was intended for a: 'Soldat eines Panzergrenadiere-Regiments' (or: simply soldier who served within a later-war-period rifle-regiment) and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'-), condition. The straps - which are approximately 11 cms. sized in length each - have the 'standard-pattern'- and/or typical, field-grey- (ie. somewhat earthen-brown-) coloured and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' and show the neat bright-green- (ie. 'wiesengrüner'-) coloured and/or: 'silk-like'-type branchcolour (ie. piping) attached. The straps are constructed following the typical '1944 cloth-minimising production-manner', using different shades of wool and/or material (as can be seen on the pictures). The straps show some minimal staining simply caused by decades of storage only. It should be noted that all 'M44'-style, EM-pattern shoulderstraps are actually quite hard to encounter and can easily be graded 'scarce': the ones as intended for the 'Panzergrenadier-Truppen' even more so! Simply a nice occasion to acquire an attractive - and fully 'text-book'! - M44-styled, enlisted-mens'-type shoulderstrap-pair as was intended for usage by a: 'Soldat eines Panzergrenadiere-Regiments': great to complete any later-war M44- (ie.even M43-) model 'Heeres'-tunic!
