    just purchased these after receiving my copy of ( german army shoulder boards )
    it sparked an new interest in boards now that I know what the devices mean.

    un-orthodox enlisted straps

    I have found this page SO helpful as a new collector! Thankyou.

    I always wonder about the myriad patterns of enlisted straps with non standard tongs.

    1) the green felt officer-type narrow tongs. Often seem to be added onto high quality parade type straps. Although a war-time practice (I assume), are there any tips as to if check this was done postwar?

    2)The other pattern is the folded over loop of thin herringbone pattern cloth ("ribbon") used as tongs.

    3)The backing material made of bright blue or green felt , oftern on a seemingly early war green strap. (I have heard that this was a late war practice but why the high quality cloth with the cheap felt backing?)

    4) what are we to make of so called "private purchase", as an excuse for non orthodox patterned straps. Odd button hole manufacture etc. Any tips for helping tell fakes in this area?

    Please add other styles and add comments.

    Would be nice to post some pics of these patterns with comments from the experts

    Yes - the articles can be updated (assuming I can coax Seba into posting the changes..... ) Let me know what you have.
