I thought that yhese SB's were Customs originally but they can't be because they do not have the RSV cypher. Can anyone help with id please? The chevrons are black thread and the backing is dark green. Two gilt pips to front.

Thanks

I have just had a further thought could it be RAD oberstfeldmeister . However didn't they have a black backing?

Hi Bayern. I think the chevrons on Bundesgrenzschutz were green. Mine are definitely black.

Hello ,Yes the BGS chevrons were dark green not black .  then your SB must be that of a Oberzollinspektor Landzollbeamte ,bottle green and dull aluminium . The Zollbeamten ,used bottle green and bright aluminium

That's it. Well done Bayern I have found some illustrations now for Landzollbeamte. I just needed pointing in the right direction and you were spot on again.
