    The colour is not one I recognise. Also without a waffenfarbe it makes it somewhat difficult. They could be post war, but let\s wait for more comments.

    Well these boards are sending me mixed signals. I would think this may be forestry of some sort. But the triple interwoven braid is commonly found on WW2 Croatian items. However the boards themselves are not of Croatian design. So short and sweet, I don't know! I will look through some books tonight.

    I don't think these are Forestry at all. See att. The forestry items were green as far as I know.
    The item in post 1 is unknown to me, but reminds me of the luftshutz ones, what with the braiding across, but they looked more like this one.

    Hi all , Thank You for your replies !! I figure they never had a waffenfarbe due to the braid being so tight . The color is a dark green I don't remember where I got it so that doesn't help . Lets see what else comes up .
    Thanks again !!!

    I cannot comment on originality, but this would appear to be a 1939 pattern shoulder cord as worn by Sonderführer, Stellengruppe G of the Heer or Luftwaffe.

    Sonderführer were personnel with specialized civilian skills who were appointed to temporarily fill officer- or NCO duty positions in wartime. The G (= Gruppenführer) grade was equivalent to an Unteroffizier.

    See here for some more on the subject:
