German WWII SS Shoulder Boards for Artillery NCO- Fine original example in used condition. These would be for the rank of SS Oberscharführer, except there is one pip that is missing from each of the shoulder boards. Based on the source from where these came, I do not have an explanation for the missing pip, unless it means that some disciplinary action was taken, and this NCO lost a rank. The black slip on style shoulder boards have subdued NCO tressing and still retain the single pip for the rank of Scharführer. The red wool piping is intact. Overall, the condition shows light to moderate wear. Intriguing and scarce.
