I have no idea, but the green center stripe says Saschen, unless it's faded cornflower blue
I think this "BL" board has been discussed before. I think it was a Saxon doctor's board that was hijacked and used for some non-military purpose (Sch?tzenverein, etc.).
So simple yet sooooo good.
Today I finally picked up the set of boards that would grace the Jacket that has been laying around patiently for so long.....

I believe these are for the "Mantel"

A worn shoulder board without any holes poked in, is not easy to find.

I often wonder about thes numberless boards. Who wore them and why. Garde and staff are possibilities to be sure, but one never really knows for sure.
In Saxon RL from 1914, there is few officers with that grade on Staff. For mether are a pre-war shoulderboards. But I'm not a specialist like you. That's why I ask you first to be sure
There are other possibilities like non-regimental officers, retired officers, etc. The underlay color on this one looks more scarlet to me than Karmasinrot, but that could just be the scan or the color values on my computer. I agree with you that is looks more to be something from before the war, but one cannot be certain of that without knowing what branch it is supposed to be. Regardless, it's a nice piece.
