Hello,

I do not think they are. As far as I know, DDR shoulder boards from lieutenant-captain never had woolen bases, they were always made of cotton.

I'm also not liking the overall construction quality. Finally, the tongues don't even have slits in them for attaching and have a strange stitching pattern. Also, the tongues were always attached on the inside the backing fabric, not on top.

To me these seem like some sort of cheap Wehrmacht reproduction shoulder boards.
