Nice photo Andreas! It's good to see one that shows an officer's version. My cloth example is black velvet with silver wire border and letters. It belonged to a Saxon officer. I have a pair of his shoulder boards too.

Beautiful set of MW tools (and tool box). Are these yours or is this from a museum? I'd love to see more pictures.

Hello Christophe,

The officer's boards that came with this patch are his from after the introduction of the "MW" for shoulder boards. This introduction meant that the sleeve patches were no longer needed and they were quickly discontinued. I suppose that is one reason the patches are so rare to find today.

This is half of a pair (the other is in a frame).
