    Streifendienst shoulder boards OK ?


  2. #2
    They appear to be non RZM straps, possibly transitional straps to me. Not for the collector of only textbook straps, but I like them. I would have bought them but the price was sort of high IMO so I did not. He has a set of General HJ as well, missing pips but were once Obergefolgschaftsführer straps from the same Bann. From the photos the RZM set appears to have the correct internal stiffeners for the rank as well. The pips could easily be restored to them for a nice set of lower level leadership straps. Dion got all the items from the same person. The Streifendienst have been sold on the WAF Estand already.

    Edited to add Dion's (MD Militaria) photo of the straps.

    Hello Alois,

    It would be wiser to collect only the regulatory shoulder straps. Be careful !.
    In my case, i don't like these Streifendienst shoulder boards .
    Every dealer can have good items or not on their website and it is certainly not a reference.
    Some of us had bad surprises with this kind of argument.

    Best regards

    Eric

    Personally , I like them . I like the tight stiching of the numbers. Yes they are not textbook RZM , however; I have been collecting long enough (since 1974) to know that not all is textbook (especially before 1935 and after 1942) I just purchased them as well as the red piped straps missing the pips.
    When they come in the post, I will put up some photos and see what feedback I get from those who can give me there experianced opinions .
    If in hand , I do not like them .... I can allways send them back .

    I agree do not ever depend upon a dealer or what is on his site to determine if items are good or not, decide for yourself after doing your own research and seeing the research of others. I also recognize as Joe says not all is regulation or textbook with cloth HJ items in particular, but as said this is not a set for a collector looking for "textbook" examples, as they are not RZM straps at all. I do like them, and had the chance to buy them almost a week ago but passed on them, as I am not buying anything lately unless it is a very rare or unique set of straps.

    Hello,

    Personally, I decided to stop collecting non regulatory items for two reasons : there is always some doubt and the risk of being married with them.

    Hello Lauri,

    don't forget that these shoulder boards are 70 years old, the used cloth should be rough after all these years and not soft to the touch as the velvet.
    It is true that after 1942, the regulations for HJ items were no longer respected but numerals were often metallic and not of cloth.
