Reichwehr / Wehrmacht 1934 first pattern shoulder straps
For feldwebel without piping
Rare in original pair !
The first pattern shoulder straps utilized by EM/NCO’s during the Third Reich period were a carry over from the Reichswehr era and consisted of a pointed tip strap with no waffenfarben, (Branch of Service Color), piping. Originally the first pattern straps were constructed in basic field-grey wool until regulations of December 10TH 1934 altered the material to field-grey badge cloth.
Due to the lack of the waffenfarbe piping on the first pattern shoulder straps the particular branch of service can not be determined unless the straps have had the regimental numeral embroidered in the branch of service color
