WWII German Forestry Official Shoulder Board Sew In Set- These are gorgeous, with a dark green velvet base and green cloth braid. These are the sew-in type boards. Each board has a single metal acorn which indicates this is for the rank of Oberforstmeister. The acorns retain the majority of their finish. The Reichsforstamt (National Forestry Office) was created in 1934 to replace the regional forestry departments that had existed prior to this date. The goals of the Reichsforstamt were to extract economic value in the form of timber from the forests for the German industry, as well as preserve nature and natural monuments for the people as a part of German culture. These are excellent!
