This is a single rittmeister’s shoulder board from 3. Schlesisches Dragoner-Regiment Nr 15. The regiment was formed in 1866. It was garrisoned at Hagenau, where it was attached to the XV. ArmeeKorps. The shoulder board is more narrow than most Infanterie or Artillerie shoulder boards. It measures 4 3/4″ x 1 1/8.” It has the regimental number in gilt, as well as the twin pips of a Rittmeister, also in gilt. It has an old tag attached to it. It appears that it came from an old French collection. The shoulder board has a red backing. It is in very fine condition, overall.
