Attractive - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), early-war period- (ie. 'M36/M40'-pattern-, rounded-styled- and/or 'tailor-made') NCO-type shoulderstraps as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel einer Sanitäts-Abteilungs'
This is an attractive - and/or fully matching and unusually small-sized! - pair of WH (Heeres), early-war period- (ie. 'M36/M40'-pattern, rounded styled) NCO-type shoulderstraps as was piped in the darker-blue- (ie. 'blauer'-) coloured branchcolour as was intended for a: 'Feldwebel einer Sanitäts-Abteilungs' (or: sergeant ie. medical-orderly) who served within a: 'Heeres Sanitäts-Abteilung' and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used ie. worn- and/or most certainly once tunic-attached-), condition. The shoulderstraps - which are approximately 9,5 cms. sized in length - have the 'standard-type'- and/or: darker-green-coloured- and/or 'smooth-woolen'-based 'upperdecks' and have (as to be expected) the darker-blue- (ie. 'blauer'-) coloured- and/or woolen-type piping attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The straps - which come mounted on their functional (small-shaped) tongues attached - show as stated above only minimal usage and/or wear (some minor wear, staining and/or dust is visible and/or present). The straps show the (standard-pattern) silver-coloured (ie. somewhat shiny) NCO-braid attached and show a matching pair of silver-toned- (regular-sized- and/or: 'Buntmetall'-based) pips, period-attached. This particular pair - which is as stated above completely matching - originated from an older cloth- and/or shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired. The straps are constructed from so-called: 'boiled-wool' and are (I deem) a typical pair that originates from a private tailor-shop. Simply an attractive shoulderstrap-pair that belonged to a: 'Feldwebel einer Sanitäts-Abteilungs'!
