Heres an interesting non standard piece. Looks like someone modified a late war Embroidered officer collar tab and added piping to it. It all looks period done to me but who knows.comments? I sewed it to the uniform. Jim

Does look original. Only thing I can think of is that they were on an assault gunner's tunic.

Default Piped Panzer Officer Tab

Nice tab Jim! FYI, while these were not "by the book" I have seen two period photos of officers wearing piped officer field service collar tabs on their Sturmartillerie uniforms.

Hey Mike,

Today I went through both of your books on Panzer Uniforms hoping to find a picture. Those two obviousily didn't make the cut. So it appears you need to publish Volume 3 ha,ha. Regards Jim

Mike:
I am scanner challenged these days having only a printer/fax/scanner combination which is only a decent printer. Sooo...I was hesitant to post crumby scans. But your thread is very good and I erred toward contributing something regardless.

Jim:
Some nice GD straps. You have only the second example I have ever seen of the smaler GD officer cypher. I own a single Pionier board with one...that's it. You have more of this size cypher?

Rick:
Awesome general's strap...very rare! Thanks for that one.

Anyhow...since Lehr seems to be a popular trend in this thread, here's more. These being red piped for Artillery/Sturmartillerie Lehr

The FHQ /FBB is a particular interest of mine. The cuffband has snaps on teh reverse for easy on-off the uniform. According to veteran sources, these were only allowed to be worn when NOT at the FHQ...a rule of I think 150 Km applied.

Lastly - I cannot think of a more rare strap in my collection than this one (actually, I have the set of everything shown)

Hi Scott,

Some awesome insignia! I love the GD insignia, just can't afford to buy it anymore.

The small ciphers are a pair I got from Mike Pruett.Whats interesting is the board was originally Cav and pink cloth was added to reflect Panzer.

I also posted some non standard GD boards and the consensus is we're waiting for you to comment. Jim

Wow nice boards everyone.

Here is a pair of PzPi. NCO with fleck piping. They have #7 slides. The slides are black, with an embroidered black 7 outlined in white.
