Default Opinion on SS shoulder straps

Hi guys,

A friend of mine is currently selling this pair of SS shoulder boards, I am interested in them and I would like your opinion.

Thank you

Regards

Heavily worn, but they look OK.

Thank you for all your answers about these boards. They were found in Normandy by my friend, so probably worn but maybe not that long.

Is that piping a very dirty white or a light KZ brown?

I hadn't considered the possibility the straps might be faded KZ, but it would be easy for Julfrenchie to tell. Gently roll the piping to the side so the edge of the piping that is sewn into the strap is visible. If it is darker, they may be KZ (Idoubt it). But if it is lighter, Infantry.

They look like dirty, aged and soiled white to me.
