PRUSSIA – SINGLE SHOULDER BOARD – GENERALFELDMARSCHALL – M 1915.
Here is another very fine example of a single Prussian Generalfeldmarschall’s M-1915 subdued shoulder board that measures 1.5″ x 4.” As you can see, it is slightly smaller than SKU# 23-533, so they clearly came from two different tunics. By my count, six different WW I Prussian Generalfeldmarschalls could have worn this particular shoulder board. Its black and white Prussian chevrons are clearly visible on the subdued silver rope enclosed within its border of muted, dark-gold braid. The detailing on its crossed, restrained-silver, Generalfeldmarschall’s batons is extremely impressive. Both the batons and the gold braid are a bit brighter on SKU# 23-534 than SKU# 23-533.
The shoulder board’s reverse reveals a red felt backing that is of the sewn-in variety (which is an unusual variation). Its condition is excellent, overall.
