  • German WWII Signals Shoulder Boards With Insignia **Archives**

    $59.00 $59.00

    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!
