Attractive - and/or fully matching! - pair of (I deem mid- ie. later-war-period-) WH (Heeres) so-called: 'M43'-pattern, NCO-type shoulderstraps as was intended for - and clearly worn by! - an: 'Oberfeldwebel eines Nachshub-Abteilungs'
The neat straps - which are approximately 10,5 cms. sized in length each as more often encountered - have the 'standard-type'- and/or typical field-grey-coloured- and/or: woolen-based 'upperdecks' and show the neat light-blue- (ie. 'kornblumenblauer'-) coloured and/or: desirable 'silk-like'-type branchcolour ie. piping, attached. The straps were - I deem - only minimally used- and/or worn and do show only minimal staining and/or age caused by moderate wear and decades of storage (they are, however, fully void of any damage or alike as can be seen on the pictures). The straps come naturally mounted on their functional tongues and have the neat non-'standard'-type, greyish-silver-coloured 'Heeres'-type NCO-braid and four (regular-sized, identical and/or aluminium-based) pips period-attached, denoting the NCOs'-rank of: 'Oberfeldwebel' (ie. sergeant first-class). Of interest is, moroever, the fact that the NCO-braid is of the pattern showing two interwoven black-stripes which braid is hardly ever used for shoulderstrap-usage. Simply a great occasion to acquire a very attractive and/or fully 'text-book', M43-styled, NCO-type shoulderstrap-pair that was intended for usage by an: 'Oberfeldwebel eines Nachshub-Abteilungs': great to complete any mid- ie. later-war M43-tunic!
