Second opinion on Luftwaffe Waffenfarbe?

Recommended Posts

I received this shoulderboard recently:

Looking for second opinions on the Waffenfarbe. The color appears to be uniform, and doesn't appear any darker / different when you look in the various nooks and crannies that wouldn't have seen as much sunlight. In the photo below, this board is in the middle. The one above it is a Heer Infanterie board, and the one below it is a standard Luftwaffe Fliegertruppe/Fallschirmjäger board. It looks decidedly more yellowish than the Heer board, but downright white when compared to the Luft board below. Is this a HG board piped in a warm toned / dingy looking white, or is it a Fliegertruppe/Fallschirmjäger board made with piping that happens to be less colorfast than normal?

I am thinking "dirty" white.

Admittedly that's what I was hoping someone would say. I didn't pay a Hermann Göring Division price for it. :whistle:
