Original East German Swallow's Nests (Schwalbennest) set. Special insignia for musical personnel worn on the shoulders of their uniform tunic. Green Wool with Silver braid stripes and fringe. Hooks on the rear to attach to loops on shoulders of uniform. Green color is most likely for Grenztruppen der DDR or Volkspolizei. Same Style as WWII German Schwalbennest. Shows some use and age, but overall in very good condition.
