This is an interesting pair of oberst’s shoulder boards from Saxony’s Bezirks-Kommando Nr 47. A Bezirks-Kommando was a training district for new recruits and reservists who were being prepared to go to various units. These are very large and ornate shoulder boards (each measures 5″ x 2″). They feature the green Saxon thread in the silver bullion. Each shoulder board displays the numeral “47.” While these are for an oberst, one of the two shoulder boards is missing its second gilt pip. Each shoulder board, which is of the slip-on variety, has red backing and a gold button for mounting on the tunic. The price of the pair more than reflects the missing pip. Perhaps you can find a replacement for it.
