    The early straps are interesting as sometimes the piping matches the Landesfarben, but checking the unit locations sometimes it does not. It's still confusing to me.

    Also note the piping on the cap in the photo, the unusual place the member badge is worn and that both boys wear the Potsdam badge. Great photo.

    early schoulder straps

    Hi Gefolgschaft,
    I also have doubts concerning pipings on shoulder straps.
    The german collectors are of the opinion that that would match to states (Lšnder) and they reused the colors of the imperial army (Kaiserlischen Armee).
    I think that you already have noticed, that rosettes concerned spiked helmets matched in region.
    I also show you some examples of early shoulder straps of my collection.

    very nice to see these early straps which are not well represented in any books. Very pleased to see these added to the perminant articles for all to see and research. There are some great collections out there and thanks to this forum we are seeing more and more rarities
