Default DDR EM shoulder boards

I found a bag of DDR EM shoulder boards in a box in my shed, I didn't know I had them, I must have gotten them back in the early '90s when I was buying DDR jack boots to sell to reenactors.
Is there any demand for them or are they so common that they are not worth bothering with? My camera is on the blink otherwise I would post pics of them. Various colors.

Like said, it depends what type of boards we're talking about.

The older, the better. The first pattern EM boards with soft wool base and tongue are notably rarer and more valuable than the later ones where said parts are made of thin cotton. The earlier ones are also slightly wider.

Late issue EM shoulder boards are very common and you can get them for about 5 bucks per pair. The earlier ones can go for a bit more, maybe even 15-20.

Yeah, there are still a number of sellers on Ebay and elsewhere who sell them for as low as 1-2€.

They might be cheap, but they are collectable and part of the story nevertheless.

Here they are if anyone wants them. I will ship them in the U.S. All I ask is remuneration for the shipping cost when you get them. (I wouldn't even ask but I sent a fellow some Kar98k parts at no charge he had listed in the Wanted Section that he needed figuring he would at least send me my shipping costs but he not only didn't but he never sent me a "Thank You" note).
