Superb - and fully matching! - pair of WH (Heeres), early-war-period- (ie. 'M36'- ie. 'M40'-) pattern NCO-type shoulderstraps as was intended for usage by a: 'Feldwebel des Kradschützen-Bataillon 2 der Pz.- u. Inf.-Div.'
This is a very attractive - and/or fully matching and with certainty scarcely encountered! - 'standard-issued' pair of WH (Heeres) early-war period- (ie. 'M36'- ie. 'M40'-pattern and/or: rounded-style) NCO-type shoulderstraps as was piped in the desirable golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured branchcolour as was intended for usage by a: 'Feldwebel der Kradschützenbtle. der Pz.Div. u. Inf.Div. (mot)' (or: sergeant who served within a 'Kavallerie - o. Aufklärungs'-related army motorcyclists-unit) and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. just moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The neat straps - which have the 'standard'-pattern, darker-green-coloured and/or 'smooth woolen'-based 'upperdecks' - show the neat golden-yellow- (ie. 'goldgelbener'-) coloured (and/or woolen-type-) piping attached (as can be seen on the pictures). The straps show the ('standard-issue'-pattern) silverish-toned NCO-braid attached denoting the NCOs-rank of: 'Feldwebel' (ie. sergeant). They each measure approximately 10,7 cms. in length and come mounted onto their functional tongues and come in a very nice- ie. fully 'text-book' condition, overall. The pair - which is a typical, early-period- and 'standard-issued' pair - shows - as stated above - some moderate usage (just some moderate age, dust and/or staining is visible and/or present). The shoulderstraps show a matching pair of the neat (frosted-silver-toned, 'Buntmetall'-based, Gothic-styled- and/or regular-sized) 'K'-cyphers, a matching pair of (equally styled and larger-sized) '2'-numerals (ie. 'Ziffern') and two (smaller-sized) pips period-attached denoting the rank ie. function of: 'Feldwebel der Kradschützenbtle. der Pz.Div. u. Inf.Div. (mot)'. It should be noted that ALL NCO-pattern, cyphered 'Kavallerie - o. Aufklärungs'-related shoulderstraps can easily be regarded 'very scarce' and do not come that often for sale. In any case a very attractive and/or: early-war-period, 'Heeres'-'Kavallerie - o. Aufklärungs'-related NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair that was intended for usage by a: 'Feldwebel der Kradschützenbtle. der Pz.Div. u. Inf.Div. (mot)': it will be very hard to upgrade this very attractive pair!
