Even "NICER", since they're from a PANZER DIVISION: 1st Pz.Div.
Panzerjager units attached to INFANTRY DIVISIONS wore the same
Cypher in pink also, but different #s (e.g.: Panzerjager Abt 7 of the
7.Infanterie division wore "P7" cyphers in pink.

Many thank for your early replies.
So they are original....

Please longislandercjv which is the difference between those attached to a PzD and those to a ID?
Is it the disposition of letter and numbers? Do I understand well?

Excellent pair, the owner was an NCO candidate too! Panzerjaeger Abt. 37 is an organic part of the 1. Panzer Division.

http://www.lexikon-der-wehrmacht.de/...Gliederung.htm

In most cases, the number of a Panzerjaeger Abt. organic to an Infanterie division was the same or close to the divisional number itself.

Panzerjaeger Abt. 1 was part of the 1 Infanterie Division.

Panzerjaeger Abt. 171 was part of the 71. Infanterie Division.

These are a couple of examples.

Attached is a scan of 1. Panzer Divison sub-units pre-war (shoulder straps and boards used to illustrate).

The components of Panzerjaeger units would change during the war.
