    Default Shoulder boards

    I have seen this little collection for sale. I think the first one is for an artillery leutnant and after that am lost. Yellow is signals and blue admin I believe. The chevron is for obergefreiter - heer I assume. He is asking $75 which I think is around market value. Any comments appreciated.

    The yellow looks like its on a blue grey material making it Luftwaffe Flight Shoulder strap. The Blue would be Medical.
    Not sure whether the second Lt board is red or orange, red would be Artillery and orange would be MP.
    The rank chevron is also Luftwaffe and for the rank of Obergefreiter.
    $75 for the lot is not a bad price at all....

    Orange brown is luft signals, so yellow would be for flight or paras and it has luft tress, so luft it is.

    I don't think either of the bullion boards are artillery, the detail of the bullion with the highlight threads is not something I would expect to see for artillery

    The blue heer board could be transport, though medical could be right, it depends on the shade of blue.

    The obergefreiter winkel also looks to be luft.

    Here are a luft signals board and an artillery board for comparison.

    Are the bullion ones not WW1 items?
    The blue looks like the darker cornflower blue, so medical for sure.
    Tress design is not always the only way to determine branch of service as can be seen below.

    Tress design is not always the only way to determine branch of service as can be seen below. Indeed, but a good rough guide and combined with the blue grey wool, a reasonable assumption.
