Superb - and fully matching! - WWII-period, 'Polizei'-related NCO-type shoulderboard-pair for a: 'Wachtmeister der Schutzpolizei' (that comes still 'packed' in its period wrapping-'Banderolle' marked: 'Uniformenfabrik Carl Siedler - Wien VII')
I recently uncovered a small lot comprising of seven - fully identical- and matching! - pairs of these interesting 'Polizei'- (ie. 'Schutzpolizei'-) related, NCO-type shoulderboard-pairs (that originated from the left-overs of an old tailor-shop) that were intended for usage by WWII-period police-staff holding the rank of: 'Wachtmeister der Schutzpolizei' (ie. police-sergeant) and that come all seven in an absolutely 'mint- ie. unissued'- and/or simply never used- nor tunic-attached, condition. The boards come all without tongues and were unmistakenly intended to be used as pairs of the 'sew-in-type': they measure approximately 11,7 cms. in length and have the typical greyish-silver- (ie. brownish-) coloured 'upperdecks' as mounted onto a light-green-coloured (and/or linnen-based) 'underlay' as to be expected.. The sets came still 'packed' in their period, paper-based- and period-attached so-called: wrapping-'Banderolles', mentioning their maker being a company named the: 'Uniformenfabrik Carl Siedler' as based in the town of Vienna/Austria (as can be seen on the pictures). The pairs do all show some truly minimal age ie. staining, simply caused by decades of storage only. My asking-price is naturally intended per single pair. Simply a great occasion to acquire a neat 'Polizei- o. Schutzpolizei'-related, NCO-type shoulderboard-pair for a competitive price!
