PAIR OF KAPITÄN zur SEE SHOULDER BOARDS – KAISERLICHE MARINE

SKU: 13-861

$850.00

In the Kaiserliche Marine, a Kapitän zur See was a rank equivalent to that of an Army Oberst (Colonel). Typically, a Kapitän zur See commanded a battleship, or a squadron of smaller ships. Such a high rank meant that the Navy had only a few men bearing it at any given time. We are exceedingly pleased to be offering a Kapitän zur See’s shoulder boards today. They sport the twisted silver bullion braid seen on field-grade officers’ shoulder boards. Black chevrons grace the silver bullion. The boards also display twin, gilt-toned pips denoting the rank. The reverse displays the purple/dark-blue backing indicative of naval shoulder boards. The very handsome shoulder boards belong to the slip-on variety.
