Original Militaria And Curios From All Periods
  • German WWII Signals Shoulder Boards With Insignia


    The various branches of the German Army were allocated specific branch of service colors for identification purposes.

    The “waffenfarbe” is also known as ‘Branch of Service Color”.  The base is a bright lemon-yellow wool, which I believe indicates use by “Signals Troops” or “Nachrichten”. The Braid is a silver or aluminum color in very good condition and includes a stamped alloy rank pip and a gold washed number three.

    There is some light soiling and a few moth nips on the felt, but overall a nice example at a reasonable price!
