Attractive - and matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), early- (ie. pre-) war-period, 'M36'- (ie. 'M40'-) pattern (pointed-styled!) and generic-pattern, 'cyphered' NCO-type shoulderstraps for an: 'Oberfeldwebel des Infanterie-Regiments 75'
This is an attractive - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), early- (ie. evt. pre-) war-period, 'M36'- (ie. 'M40'-) pattern (pointed-styled!) and generic-pattern, NCO-type shoulderstraps (being a pair having no branchcolour as per regulation) as was intended for - and clearly used by! - an: 'Oberfeldwebel des Infanterie-Regiments 75' (or: sergeant first-class who served within the infantry-regiment ie. unit numbered: '75') and that comes in overall nice- (albeit moderately used- ie. worn- and/or: clearly tunic-removed-), condition. The neat straps - which measure both approximately 11,7 cms. in length - are void of any real damage (just some regular age- and/or wet is visible) and have the 'standard-pattern' and/or: darker-green-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' and have as stated above no piping nor branchcolour attached: they are of the 'generic pattern' (as can be seen on the pictures). The shoulderstraps - that came with a pair of field-grey-toned, so-called: screw-on buttons (ie. 'Scharubknöpfe') attached - show the (standard-pattern) bright-silver-coloured NCO-braid attached and have each a (fully matching) set of (larger-sized, early pattern, silver-coloured- and/or aluminium-based) '7'- and/or: '5'-numerals (ie. 'Ziffern') and two pairs of (also matching, aluminium-based and smaller-sized) pips period-attached, denoting that the pair was intended for an NCO with the rank of: 'Oberfeldwebel' (ie. sergeant first-class). All eight devices were with certainty period-attached and do just show some regular age and/or minimal tarnish. The pair comes naturally mounted onto its original (but somewhat smaller-made) tongues attached and does show some minimal age, wear and/or staining (as can be seen on the pictures). This particular shoulderstrap-pair originated from a larger cloth- ie. 'cyphered' shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired for the web-site and shows - as stated above - moderate usage ie. wear. Simply a nice and moderately used and/or worn - and quite early- (ie. evt. pre-war-) period, 'Heeres' NCO-type, shoulderstrap-pair that belonged to an: 'Oberfeldwebel des Infanterie-Regiments 75': I deem that I have priced this neat 'Infanterie'-related NCO-pair, accordingly!
