SAXONY – SHOULDER BOARDS – LEUTNANT- INFANTERIE-REGIMENT Nr 106SKU: 23-345
$395.00Here is a pair of leutnant’s shoulder boards from Königl. Sächs. 7. Infanterie-Regiment König Georg Nr 106. This old-line regiment from the Kingdom of Saxony was raised in 1708. It was garrisoned at Leipzig, where it was attached to Saxony’s XIX. Armeekorps. The boards measure 1 1/4″ x 5 1/4.” Each shoulder board bears König Georg of Saxony’s gilt-toned, crowned, royal cypher. If you look closely at the silver toned bullion’s chevrons, you will note Saxony’s characteristic green color rather than Prussia’s black or Bavaria’s blue. The shoulder boards are of the sewn-in variety, which was quite common for junior officers. Each also has a gilt button attached. Their reverse underlays are red. Their overall condition is excellent.
