Heer Shoulder Tab Button Pair

Posted in Accessories with tags , , on November 28, 2015 by The Dude

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis humble pair of buttons is the wartime pattern for the shoulder tabs of Army field uniforms. Prior to 1940 these would have had a company number embossed on them. For economy and secrecy sake this was discontinued in 1940. I sourced these to complete an HJ tunic I am pimping but found an HJ/DJ pair before they arrived.
