    Charles,

    If you are eager for an issue NCO tunic, what do you have to trade?

      Hi Charles,

      Unfortunately, not interested in Officer's stuff or medals. :(

  2. Hi Andy,

    Did you notice the pair of M15 FAR.43 enlisted man's straps for sale here?

  3. Chris,

    Just an additional note for you regarding the P.B.12 straps. While they are nice and desirable, they have turned out to be the most commonly seen M15 Pionier straps. Having a pair is a bonus. I've had chances to purchase pairs from this battalion before, but I already had a single and pairs aren't cheap.

    Not to rain on your parade, as I said they are highly desirable, but I would not call them rare at all. P.B.12 and P.B.22 spawned almost all of the rest of the Saxon pionier companies. I consider the company level straps much more scarce and continue to look for them for myself.

      And then I have seen things that were considered rare and then more and more showed up and they weren't so rare any more.

  4. Chris,

    I bid on twelve lots at Stauffer's, but only got one. The one that I did get had four straps in it, three of which were different patterns (one m11 enlisted Flieger for the M95 Waffenrock, one M07/11 for the feldgrau Waffenrock and two M15s. Funny thing was, the M07/11 was the other half of a pair, the single of which I got seven years ago! Now, the private purchase pair is back together. Small world.

    Who was the guy that you bought the Leib boards from? Was it Ebayer Ulan9?

    I probably should have bid higher at Stauffer's, but I subtracted the 22% VAT from my bids and I was a bit conservative, as I was afraid I might get more than I could afford. Stauffer's charged me 35 Euro to mail four straps to the States. They then sent me another bill with a 60 Euro packaging and mailing fee. Fortunately, I had already paid the lower amount and they did sent the straps out. What a rip!

      Bavarian Jäger straps are few and far between, especially wartime models, which are very non-descript. A gray strap with a "1" or a "2" is really not very noteworthy. One would easily pass them up. The M15 green versions are very tough to find. I have owned three enlisted ones from the 3.Jäger Regt. and have never seen issue versions from the 1st or 2nd. Maybe someday....
