    Not really my thing. I expect the value would be fairly low? Only buy them if they interest you is my advice.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hello Adrian
    Do you know where I can search after ww2 german shoulder boards and their meaning? Also, I need to find out my grandfathers rank, but all I have is a black and white photo... I know he was a "Stabsveterinär" in Russia and probably at some time in Poland.

    Hi Andreas, his rank would have been equal to a Hauptmann (Captain).
