Attractive - fully matching and clearly used! - pair of WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-) war-period- (ie. 'M36 o. 40'-pattern, 'tailor-made') NCO-type shoulderstraps as was intended for usage by a: 'Stabsfeldwebel des Art.-Rgts. 2 (mot)'
This is an attractive - fully matching and with certainty heavingly worn! - pair of WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-) war-period- (ie. 'M36 o. 40'-pattern- and/or typical 'tailor-made') 'cyphered' NCO-type shoulderstraps as piped in the neat bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured branchcolour as was intended for usage by a: 'Stabsfeldwebel o. Spiess u. Mitglied des Artillerie-Regiments 2 (mot.)' (or: senior- ie. company-sergeant who served within the motorised artillery-regiment numbered: '2') and that comes in overall nice- (albeit clearly used- and/or worn-), condition. The neat straps - which are both approximately 11 cms. sized in length each - have the 'standard-pattern'- and/or: dark-green-coloured- and/or (boiled)woolen-based 'upperdecks' and show the bright-red- (ie. 'hochroter'-) coloured- and/or woolen-type piping attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The shoulderstraps show the ('standard-pattern'), silverish-coloured NCO-braid attached and have each a (silver-toned- and 'Buntmetall'-based) '2'-numeral (ie. 'Ziffer') and three (regular-sized- and/or: aluminium- ie. zinc-based) pips period-attached denoting that the pair was intended for a senior NCO with the (unusually seen!) rank of: 'Stabsfeldwebel o. Spiess' (ie. senior- or: company-sergeant). All eight devices were with certainty period-attached do show some regular age and/or minimal tarnish (as can be seen on the pictures). 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. Both pieces show evident age, wear and/or staining but are totally void of any damage. Simply an attractive WH (Heeres) shoulderstrap-pair that belonged to a: a: 'Stabsfeldwebel o. Spiess' who served within the: 'Artillerie-Regiment 2 (mot)'!
