It came in this box, but i don?t know, if it really belonged to the Insingia inside.

Gerd,

This is the correct box for General officers boards and collar tabs. They were presented this way, and with the promotion document, at the ceremony where the General was officially promoted. They are rare. I bid on a set years ago but was not the successful bidder.

Regards,

Gordon

Unfortunately I have a particular weakness for NVA shoulder boards and I have hundreds, probably well over a 1,000 pairs with extras I've accumulated. Altough I don't really collect VOPO, rail and other non-miliary boards, I've accumulated a substantial collection of these as well.

Yet I still have several holes to fill, especially in Volksmarine and some of the Fahnrich school boards for some branches. Perhaps we should set up a collectors exchange for like minded East German shoulder board collectors who have spare sets just gathering dust.

Kevin in Deva. :beer:

LOL! I put them out on the towel because they would look funny on the wooden table. :cheeky:

An exchange would be a great idea. I have boxes of rare stuff(like the BG Marine straps).

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
