    Hi Todd, would you have the full name of the Angolia and Schlicht book?
    Thanks a lot in advance.
    These were pretty much "the Bible" when I was an up and coming young collector, but seems like their fame is no longer as prevalent if the name Angolia and Schlicht didn't trigger immediate recognition. Not a slight on you, just shows my feel for the community might be outdated. (?) There are three volumes, but Volume 1 has the biggest discussion of Heer branch colors.

    Thanks a lot Todd. I have to say that I’m actually starting from scrap and my knowledge of literature is really limited. Hence the questions. The name Angolia is known but I was not sure about the book. Definitely something I will have a look at. I’ve also ordered the book from Carsten Fries and can’t wait to receive it.

    Good evening everybody,
    A quick question from my side. Does anybody have an idea what these boards could be? They are small in size versus what I would call “normal” boards, the rank pips also appear small, also they have only four loops instead of five. It’s also the first time I find an underlay like this Which is as long as the braid itself. The fabric and the braid look fine to me, the boards are magnetic. Any input would be welcome. I have added one picture comparing the shoulder board I try to identify with one that is more in line with expectations.
    Thanks in advance!

    However, I don't know enough about shoulder boards to understand why these would not have the golden yellow waffenfarbe

    Hello,
    This type of pointed shoulderstraps that comes in Feldgrau, dark Feldgrau and dark green does not have a coloured piping because at this time (1933 to 1938) the branch of service was shown on the Litzen. In 1938, rounded shoulderstraps with piping were adopted for the Feldbluse, then Litzen became general issue. Hope it helps
    Thanks
