    What do you guys think about these Shoulder Boards? They look just good enough for me to consider them but for some reason I don't like the backs. I might just be too cautious but I figured I would ask!
    Thanks,
    Brandon

    Thanks Douglas,
    I liked the detail on the piping and quality seems right but I just wanted to be sure

    The construction is similar to this piece which I purchased from a very reputable dealer.

    Yes that is the same construction and everything! Thank you very much. I wish these were yellow air crew like yours I don't have any Luftwaffe shoulder boards besides a pair of flak crew ones

    The Russian braid on the boards, construction of the pointy tipped tongue and placement of the Pips would suggest DDR

    I see what you mean thanks I just compared it to a set on collectors guild and your right. I knew something was unsettling about the back. Im glad I waited on them and I should have trusted myself but I was worried about minor details and overlooked the pointed shape staring me in the face. so does that mean douglas's boards are incorrect?

    Yes Douglas's are post war also.

    Oh dear, sorry Brandon. This board was purchased from Jamie Cross last year whom I believed was an expert, so I had complete confidence in it.
