    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

            Gee, I don't think they are really a PAIR, so you should sell one to ME...

              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.

                      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.

                            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
