Title Signals lieutenant's epaulettes
Nationality German
Period c 1933-45
Sold

This is the rank insignia for the most junior commissioned officer in the German Army. The underlay colour indicated branch of service, in this case Signals. Cavalry was a similar yellow, but with more of an orange tint. This is what they call 'citronengelb', ie lemon yellow.

This ex-tailor's shop (viz the tailor's price label left on them) pair of epaulettes is in good order with a little dust staining to the wool fabric and a few moth nips, but quite typically what would have been worn on the combat tunic, hence the dulled finish to the bullion. They measure just under 11 x 3.5 cms.

Bayonet arrived safe + sound this AM Sat. Special delivery excellent again. Worth the few extra bob. To be honest it was better than I dared hope. I usually avoid polished bits like the plague!! Your price was a bit fierce!! - but a great marking I lacked... Please email me anytime you have anything that might be of interest.
