They look fine to me.
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?
I agree with Steve.

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.
