LAH N.C.O's cyphers for the shoulderboards. These were purchased in the late 1980's by the author Robin Lumsden as original and there is some debate by SS collectors whether they are original or not, with 50% of collectors who believe they are original and 50% who believe they are produced in Eastern Europe. The fact these were purchaised before the Berlin Wall came down seems to dispel this theory, however in light of this we have erred on the side of caution and are selling them as high quality replicas with a view that they are possibly original but have no conclusive evidence. We have priced them accordingly, prongs to reverse missing.
