    Default Luftwaffe NCO shoulder straps - orginal or not?

    Hi all,

    I acquired this pair of Luftwaffe flight section Feldwebel's shoulder straps several years ago, but from a dealer who I now know to be untrustworthy. The rank pips appear to be post-war Bundeswehr, but could the straps be original WW2 production (i.e. the pips have been added post-war to 'upgrade' for increasing the sale price)?

    Thanks for your help,
    James

    Hi James, and welcome to the forum!

    The strap is original. The pip may well have been added.

    Cheers, Ade.
