    Default Luftwaffe collar tabs and shoulder boards

    Hello,
    I got these collar tabs and shoulder boards from somebody, and have no idea as to they're authenticity. I was wondering how to tell, I know on previous fake collar tabs, the miniature squares on the buckham were too large, however that'd not the case here. Any help or hints would be greatly appreciated. I also notice that the yellows between tabs to boards are slightly different. Thanks.

    Not examples I would pursue, they look like repro's to me, check the bullion gulls on the collar tabs against known originals and you will see a big difference
    between this set and originals.... The boards look bad too.

    The rank pips look newly made and lack the evidence of some 70 years of being handled, displayed and gathering patina.
    I would cast my lot with Bob for sure on these.

    Bob is correct the shoulder boards and the collar tabs are both bad in my view as well.
