    Default SS Cavalry or signals shoulder board

    Hey everyone, i need some help with this shoulder board. I believe it is either a Signals or Cavalry shoulder board, leaning more towards Cavalry. My question is, is this a repro or an original item? the dealer says it is from his personal collection and that is 100% original or he will give me my money back ....... i know pictures are never as good as holding the real thing, but opinions are greatly needed! Thanks guys!

    Sorry, I don't like the piping or the buttonholes. Pass on it.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Looks promising to me my friend but more up close pictures may be needed to tell for sure. I posted some late war ones in an earlier thread that I own. The way I am able to tell through pictures is through the detail in the construction and from viewing past threads of authentic pieces. Good luck and you should have a few more opinioins soon. I see Ade has spoken as well and you should def listen to him over me in this case.

    Regards

    Jeff

    I agree with what Ade and Dimas have stated. These straps are not original.
    All the best,

    When i posted these pics, i had already purchased the shoulder board, the dealer said he would refund my money if i was not happy or convinced. My Father-In-Law has been a collector for 42 yrs, i am going to have him look at them in a few days, but i am guessing that he will come to the same conclusion as did Ade and everyone else...... i can only hope that there is a slight chance that it is real. Glad i can get my money back!

    Absolutely NOT WWII German.
    Ade nailed it on the head piping material nothing like any type of war time German production. Button holes have bars at both ends. Again nothing even remotely similar to any war time production. Sorry.
