    Hello,

    They appear to be nice originals to me. The shoukder boards are post 1940 with rayon piping with slides for 73 Pioneer abteilung. The gefreiter chevron is pre 1940.

    Hello,
    I agree with Fred concerning originality of the items shown, but in my opinion the shoulderstraps are Pioner Abteilung 73 since quite recently. I've seen a lot of these black 73s in the last militaria fairs i've been to, it's so easy to "pimp" a pair of shoulderstraps with these...no need to stitch, no need to take apart, you only need to put the loops on the straps...but they're nice
    Thanks

    Thanks for the respond guys! Fred you mentioned the shoulder boards are post-1940, is it still possible to put those shoulder boards on a m40 tunic? thanks!

    Hello,
    Of course you can put these on a so-called M40 Feldbluse....in fact they've been made for that...
    Thanks
