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.
Interesting, I did not know that. I've actually never seen these type of officer's boards (Unterleutnant-Hauptmann) with felt backing, not even KVP ones...
