    They are Heer because they are dark green. Classic SS would be black on top, have field green underneath and have black, narrow tongues, not tapered as on your examples.

    Regards,

    Hi Rob, I think you will find these are not actually Waffen SS. (Although non regulation use of Luftwaffe pattern tress is not unknown.)

    What you have is a pair of Luftwaffe shoulder straps for Panzer Regt "Hermann Goring". They were part of the elite Herman Goring Division. They wore a unique white waffenfarbe.

    As to originality, I would like to have them in hand to make sure. I have almost given up on going from photos alone now. Try and bring them to the next event you attend. (Rob and I are in the same living history group )

    Cheers, Ade.
