GJ Oberstleutnant shoulder boards
I picked these up locally last week, they were sold as Panzer-Grenadier Oberstleutnant boards, but I believe this colour is actually for an
Oberstleutnant in the Gebirgsjaeger. The green is a touch too dark for Pz-Gren. troops. (well in my humble opinion that is, but I stand to
be corrected, I have mostly Luftwaffe items, and haven't collected a lot of Heer for several years, so my opinion may be a bit skewed).

They may be slightly too dark to be Panzergrenadier shoulderboards, in my opinion, they're also too light to be Gebirgsjäger shoulderboards...why not simply Jäger ones...

I hadn't given Jäger any thought, and now looking at the colour, I think you have nailed it...
Cheers, and thanks,
