    These slide onto the shoulderboards...I believe the "L" stands for "Lehr"...A Training Unit.
    cheers, Glenn

    Anzel, are these encased in lucite?

    Regarding the meaning of the "L", I beg to differ:

    Training formations [Lehrtruppen] had a Gothic "L". A block letter "L" in white, as seen here, was worn by Landesschützen-Bataillone. These were army infantry battalions mostly composed of older conscripts from the Landwehr and Landsturm, i.e. the second- and third-line reserves.

    This one is for Landesschützen-Bataillon 613, see:

    They appear to be encased in carbonite.

    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    Reno,
    I'm not sure. The owner said his dad who brought them back encased them in some sort of plastic. I passed on them because I figured they could not be removed. Thanks HPL2008 for the info! The owner want $75 for the encased Heer bevo breast eagle and the slide.

    That is a shame! I'm certain it's lucite. It was very popular to encase things in lucite in the '60s and '70s for some reason. Now everyone has to look at those things through a big hunk of yellow plastic. I'll choose carbonite instead any day.
