    Early grey LAH strap

    Hi Guys,

    This one is puzzling- I have seen exactly one on grey before which was owned by Martin Stiles but had the usual round top- I don't recall seeing a strap with this large style cypher with pointed army style top before?

    Would greatly appreciate any opinions you could give me on it.

    Many thanks

    It's the first version worn for a very short time in earth grey by enlisted ranks and NCOs.
    Can't comment on authenticity though

      En extremely rare piece. I never knew they existed like this.

      I have many LAH cyphered straps and boards in my collection, but a pointed one like this only with small slowing cyphers. Not big ones like the one shown. Interesting to say the least. A true rarity. Looks very convincing.

          Thanks for the comments so far Guys, Jim the reverse is shown in the 2nd photo- can you see it? or do you need a different angle?

                Hi Patrick , Is that a sewn in or is the tongue cut off ?. I have several pre -war

                Boards of the style similar to yours.Is the button hole is as unfinished as it appears?


                Cheers Steve

                  Hi Steve,

                  It's a sew in strap, the bottom is folded and sewn in.

                  The buttonhole is finished but the stitching didn't catch the edge fully on the one side so it is mis-sewn but functional.

                  thanks

                  Patrick

                    Maybe just paranoid, Or WW1 Straps taken apart and resewn with cypher added. Look at the thread around the boarder. Looks brand new, but with some of thread tarnished in spots. Button hole is weird also. I dunno

                      Good Comment . . .
                      You gave to be very careful . . . Its a mine field
                      Is it worth checking on Google to see if they are available ?

                        I have seen numerous sets of these script LAH boards and know that there are differences in how the crossbars of the letters are addressed. Some use the diagonal connector between the two legs of the H as the crossbar, and some have an additional crossbar added along with the diagonal link. But I have never seen the crossbar of the A go outside the letter and attach to the H as in this one. A sewing error? or did someone go a bit to far in adding stitching. I don't know. Something to ponder.

                          Good point Greg.

                          I just examined my large cypher and it also does not feature the crossbar of the A going outside the letter.
                          I also have a small flowing cypher on a pointed pre-war board which also does not have this feature.
                          On the 2 models of the small flowing metal cyphers I own this feature can also not be seen.
                          Last, not least, none of my gothic cyphers metals or cloth show this feature.

                          I own about 15 cyphers of all different types, shapes and sizes and non of them show this feature.

                          This piece here truely puzzles me and I must say I've never seen one on a period picture as far as I can recall.

                          Doesn't have to mean it did not exist though...

                            Barry posted a pair recently where the crossbar of the "A" connects to the "H":

                              WAF finally catching on that this plethora of new script cyphers are all fakes? Bout time.
