Nearly all the shoulder straps of the Old Army before 1902, as shown on these old colour plates by Moritz Ruhl of Leipzig. A few more new ones were introduced in the years following, otherwise a representative overview. All with their correct designation. Usefull information on a fascinating subject. These of course, are all other ranks' versions.
These company buttons arrived yesterday
Top row, fieldgrey, silver and tombak coloured, one example is of zink, another of iron.
The last two buttons are destined for the Heimatmuseum, these were for the peacetime uniforms.
Getting harder to find.
