A fine original WWII German heer (army) Oberschütze rank pip, to be worn on the left sleeve. Some residue on the reverse. Good condition.

 

The rank of Oberschütze and its specific unit type equivalents (Oberkanonier, Obergrenadier from 1942, Oberpionier, Oberfahrer, Oberfunker etc.) was created to give recognition and rank promotion to those enlisted soldiers who had achieved or displayed an above-average aptitude and proficiency but would not, however, qualify for promotion to the Gefreiter rank. A consideration for promotion to the rank of Oberschütze could usually be achieved after six months to one year of military service.
