H.J. Musicians Schwalbennester (Swallows Nests)

A nicely matching set of Schwalbennester (Swallows Nests) from a member of Jungbann 199
Pankow-Weissensee, Ost/Berlin. Note the buttons on the reverse to allow for removal from the uniform for laundering, and the button on the obverse of the "sew on" strap to allow for attachment and removal. These were worn by the Fanhfare players and drummers of the Jungbann, and are some of the only officially allowed musicians insignia by the R.Z.M. A great honest set from a Berlin based Jungbann. $450.00 for all items shown.
