Default Musician shoulder boards period ?

Hello,

I have these musician shoulder boards in my collection, german style, removed from an uniform and with trace of glue. I have never seen this kind of lyra on wehrmacht shoulder boards, maybe NVA or imperial ? Thanks for your help.
Regards.
Yannick.

I would say definitely not Imperial, Reichswehr or Wehrmacht, more like post-war of a non-military nature.

Such lining fabric was not used on Heer Wehrmacht shoulder straps

In your opinion are they post-war?

Default Shoulder boards

Hi Gents. My opinion exactly mirrors that of Pauke. The German military Musik/Trompeterkorps did not use a shoulder board like this at any time pre-1945.

Best regards,


Shawn

Finally after some research and some chances, these boards are WW2 ( for the Protektorat-polizei-Bataillon Böhmen und Mähren).
