Superb, fully matching - and not that easily found! - pair of 'cyphered' so-called: 'M-43-pattern', WH (Heeres) NCO-type shoulderstraps as was intended for - and/or most certainly worn by! - a: 'Feldwebel des Panzerjäger-Abteilungs 1'
The attractive - fully matching and actually not that easily encountered! - neatly 'cyphered' shoulderstrap-pair is of the typical mid-war-period- (ie. 'M43'-) pattern and does show only minimal age, wear and/or minimal staining (it is, however, totally void of any damage or alike). The pair has the typical field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'upperdecks' and does show the neat bright-pink- (ie. 'rosaroter'-) coloured branchcolour and desirable 'silk-like'-type piping attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The shoulderstraps - which are fully matching in all details - come mounted onto their original tongues attached and were with certainty pieces that were used as a pair on a 'front-type'-tunic. The pair - which measures approximately 11,5 cms. in length each - shows a pair of (identical, Gothic-styled, silver-toned and 'Buntmetall'-based) so-called: 'P'-cyphers (ie. 'Ziffern'), a pair of (equally-styled) '1'-numerals and two pips attached and was as such intended for - and clearly used by! - a: 'Feldwebel' (ie. sergeant) who was attached to the: 'Panzerjäger-Abteilung 1' (or: specific army tank- ie. tank-destroyer-unit, numbered '1'). The straps come naturally mounted onto their functional tongues and have the neat 'standard'-type, yellowish-silver-coloured- and/or: 'Heeres'-type NCO-braid, attached. Of additional interest is, moreover, the fact that these straps were (period)promoted (from: 'Unteroffizier' to 'Feldwebel') something that can be elaborated by the presence of the horizontally-mounted piece of NCO-braid (as can be seen on the pictures). This particular pair originated from a larger cloth- ie. 'cyphered'-shoulderstrap-collection I recently acquired for the web-site. Simply an attractive - and with certainty desirable! - 'cyphered', 'Panzer- o. Panzerjäger'-related NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair: I deem that I priced this attractive pair according to its very nice and totally untouched condition!
