Superb - fully matching and most certainly rarely encountered! - pair of (I deem early-war-period) WH (Heeres) NCO-type, 'tropical'-pattern shoulderstraps as was intended for - and most certainly worn by! - an: 'Uffz. der Jäger-Truppen'
This is a truly very attractive - fully matching and most certainly rarely encountered! - pair of (I deem fairly early-war-period ie. truly 'DAK'- or: 'Deutsches Afrika Korps'-related-) WH (Heeres) NCO-type, standard-issued, 'tropical'-pattern shoulderstraps as piped in the neat green- (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured branchcolour as was intended for - and most certainly worn by! - an: 'Unteroffizier der Jäger-Truppen' (or junior-sergeant who served within the army mountain-troops) and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit moderately used ie. clearly worn- and minimally moth damaged-), condition. The neat shoulderstraps - which are as stated above totally matching in execution and/or style - measure approximately 11,5 cms. in length each. Both straps have the typical brownish-green- (ie. tropical-) coloured and/or linnen-based 'upperdecks' (and earth-brown-coloured, woolen 'backings' as more often) and have the neat and desirable (darker)green (ie. 'grüner'-) coloured branchcolour and/or desirable 'silk-like'-type piping attached. The pair shows the golden-brown-coloured (ie. tropical sub-dued) NCO-braid attached and comes naturally mounted onto its functional tongues (of which one is minimally moth-damaged) and comes as most certainly worn and/or stored as such for decades. The neat pair was always together and was most certainly worn as such. The set is just a tiny bit dirty ie. stained and shows the clear evidence of having been moderately used and/or worn (it has minimally been faded due to obvious sunlight and does show some minimal (rust)staining). It should be noted that all (genuine!) tropical- ie. 'DAK'-related- shoulderstraps are very hard to encounter and can easily be graded 'very rare': most of the pairs offered on todays' market are regrettably copies. I am aware of the fact that they are highly priced something that is - I deem - according to their unmistaken rarity and/or desirability!
