Question about SD shoulder boards
From what I've learned, the SD first used the shoulder boards used in the black SS uniforms, but on both sides of the uniform, and that later they used army-styled shoulder boards and finally starting in 1942, police styled shoulder boards with black underlay and toxic green piping.
However, I would like to know more about SD's use of the army style shoulder boards. What color was the piping, if a member of the SD was using these type of shoulder boards? I have only found a couple images, but the piping color cannot be distinguished from them.

At first, they were (always, or at least often) of white branch color, until the "toxic green" [giftgrün ] branch color was introduced.
Do look here.
