    Default Japanese Shoulder Boards

    Have a Warrent Officers Tunic which is missing shoulder boards.

    Found these online but would like help if they are original.

    The price is $75.00. Since I've never priced them before would wondering if it was a fair price.

    Also not sure if these are the correct type. From the pic of the tunic below I see where the clip would slide in by the sleeve but not sure how the would attach near the loop buy the collar.

    Thanks in advance!

    Michael

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Just a guess: the hook is somewhat flexible. Step 1 -- slide the hinged "bar" under the shoulder loop and over the smaller loop; step 2 -- manipulate the hook through the smaller loop.

    And it's 100% true (as well as most guys on this forum as well). She smart. I tell her my collection is an "investment", she countered by saying an "investment" is something you are planning to sell at some point!!!

    Jareth,

    Thanks! These still look nice and would be neat to have in my collection. Do they look legit?

    I don't see them very often for sale.
