Default 2nd Pattern Recon Panzer Wrapper

Searched a long time to find this type. Usually when I caught wind of one, it was already sold. For me, the eagle and tabs have never been removed. The eagle is machine applied with “zip & flip” method. Both the tabs and the eagle’s machine stitching is consistent in patina and pattern as the construction of the rest of the wrap.

I can’t tell if the straps had ever been sew-in style as I can’t see any evidence of it. Before I bought the wrap, I had received mixed opinions on the straps. Most said they were fine but private purchase, a few doubt them. The photos were not the best then, so I wasn’t sure myself. But I bought the wrap for the wrap, the straps being slip-ons could be changed later. Now that I have them in hand I personally like the construction and embroidery of the cyphers and numerals. But wouldn’t mind hearing some thoughts about them on here.

I'm sorry if some of these photos were posted sideways. I just realized it after jumping on my laptop. I've tried fixing what I could by editing and re-editing them which usually fixes this problem. Looks like the tabs want to stay sideways....

Dave, you know what I think; superb!

I am anxious to hear exactly what the straps represent.

Thanks dude!

The cypher is a "G". Which should be for Army Group General Staff I think.? I've never seen this cypher on panzer boards before. They're definitely different. I'm also interested to hear what others think.
