Default Post your favorite Heer shoulder strap/board and/or collar tabs

I thought I would start a new thread on your favorite Heer shoulder strap/board and/or collar tabs. Here for a starter are a few of my favorites as follows from left to right:

Panzernachrichten Enlisted, wartime.

Panzernachrichten-Abteilung 79 Enlisted, pre-war. Tab & strap both removed from the same wrapper.

Panzer-Lehr-Rgt. Unteroffizier. Strap brought back from Normandy by a British veteran.

Panzer-Rgt. 2 Enlisted, pre-war.

I’ll post more as time permits but I invite everyone to join in with their favorites.

Best Regards

Mike

This is a little like 'Which one of your children would you save?' Here are 6 that would be on the list. From left to right:

Major, Armored Vehicle Maintenance Troops (device is a Gothic 'I').
Reserve Captain, 6th Motorcycle Rifle Battalion.
Field Marshall, 2nd pattern
Captain, Panzergrenadierdivision Feldherrnhalle. (This board is pictured on page 365 of Uniforms and Traditions of the German Army, Volume 2.)
2nd Lieutenant, Reichsgrenadierdivision 'Hoch- und Deutschmeister'.
Sergeant, Grossdeutschland Panzer.

Here is a mega rare set of boards for a panzerpioniere assault gunner wrapper. WITH TWIST PIPING.

These are pictured in Mr. Pruetts book, FIELD UNIFORMS OF GERMANY'S PANZER ELITE.

Hi guys,

Great insignia!

Mike I love the Pz Lehr board. I've never seen a good one up close and personal.

I'm not really a insignia collector so any of them I keep are special to me. Here are a few common boards.

Jim

Here are a few GD officers boards. If you examine them closely you'll find that no two are exactly alike.

Mike & Wade, be sure to let me know when any of your straps/boards need a new home. Its nice when you can get them with the collar tabs too.

While this one isn't Heer it is one of the scarcer ones in my collection: For a Diplomatic Corps General in the Justice Administration (Group 1, Pay Group B3a to B9). I have the pair.
