The Backing is OK for old ones, also the sewing of the tongue is familiar to me.
Not sure about the colour, it can be faded, of if not, they might be artillery.
there are so many variations in the shades, I have some old MfS Boards with a brownish colour.
All late 50's Boards I saw for Subalterns have these backings and also the felt, not the Cotton.

Interested in everything related to the Allied Forces in Berlin 1945 - 1994
