            Maybe to correct and in my opinion: it was not the Schützenschnur, but the precursor for the Fangschnur/Affenschaukel (the halter with snails). It weren't Dutch, but Wallonians that changed sides and served then for the Dutch.

            The lanyard shown is for 98% one for a shooting association and one can still buy them in this form.

                The story of Alva was told to me many, many years ago and was included in my book about aguillettes. They spoke about a cord with nails. And this is the precursor for the Fangschnur, as there were often two metal tips included with the braid.
                The men from Wallonië did wear leather forage straps with nails aorund the neck during the battle. After the war, the regiment did wear them from the shoulder as a sign of distinction. Note it all is a legend!

                The development of the early Fangschnur is shown with drawings in my book.
                Who cares if the websites do change their text.

                A Schützenschnur does not have nails, but acorns.

                Have a great jump into 2019: einen guten Rutsch.

                  Many thanks for the help!
                  And about time period of my cords?
                  These examples are made of not synthetic materials.
