Description

BRAID (TRESSE)- IMPERIAL GERMAN 72 “NCO”, FOR COLLAR AND CUFF, ORIGINAL WWI “PAPERCLOTH” WARTIME GRAY TAPE W/WHITE EDGING (CA 1915). VERY RARE, PERFECT TO RESTORE AN ORIGINAL WARTIME TUNIC. WE GOT THIS OUT OF FRANCE ABOUT 25 YEARS AGO. I THOUGHT WE HAD SOLD IT ALL BUT I FOUND A SMALL LOT IN A BIN WE HAD SAVED FOR OUR OWN USE. PRICE IS PER INCH. WHEN NEW IT WAS AS STRONG AS CLOTH BRAID. THEY EVEN MADE HORSE HARNESS, GEW SLINGS, MG08/15 CARRY STRAPS, ANTI-TANK AMMO BAGS, M15 TUNIC LININGS AND MG08 DRAG STRAPS STRAPS OUT OF THIS, BUT ITS LIFE SPAN IN USE WAS VERY LIMITED ONE IT GOT WET AND DRIED OUT OVER A PERIOD OF TIME (ALL EQUIPMENT HAD AN EXPECTED FIELD USE LIFE SPAM OF ONLY 3 MONTHS ANYWAY), HENCE LITTLE SURVIVED AFTER 100 YEARS. ONLY HAVE
A SMALL AMOUNT LEFT.
