    Looks OK to me. A little chewed up. Looks like the loop that buttons into the Bluse is a little torn. It appears to be a low grade marksmanship award. Why don't you like the pattern? NH

    There were 12 grades with different cord patterns, shields and devices (acorns, artillery shells) awarded. You may have a higher grade award. The second one you posted as an illustration looks to be the lowest grade. Hopefully, someone here has more expertise. NH

    Thanks for your comments, but I could not find even a single photo of these laynards with the same pattern. Description 5th grade marksman laynards is "gray silk with woven blue-gray zig-zag pattern. Have you any single pictures these awards with same laynards like on my pictures?

    After much searching I located one photo from a re-enactor site. The photo is small but it appears to have the same lanyard pattern. It is described as 5th grade. NH

    Thanks for your efforts, Neil. This photo I also found, but how you write - it's reenactors page... On pages Helmut Weitz Millitary antique is several Schützenschnur, also the 5th grade but all have the typical zig-zag pattern.
    Unfortunately, there does not download picture, here is the link.
    I think that this string is initialy either for the Wehrmacht, or even DDR army.
