I actually have a few army lanyards as well, but couldn't be bothered posting them. There are lots of photos of them here, and mine are nothing special.

David, thank you for the heads up on the reference book. I was not aware of it.

I'll keep looking for the Imperial lanyards.

Regards, --dj--Joe

Good tip, thank you. I haven't had an opportunity to look through that collectors reference. Does it cover the Luftwaffe or Kriegsmarine lanyards?

I see your Kriegsmarine lanyard has the accepted 14 knots. Back on page 10 Raymond posted an example with 17 knots. I learn as I go so I now know the 17 knot to be a Bundeswehr period lanyard. I haven't heard from Raymond for awhile to let him know.

On page 11 Z06Berlin posted a 14 knot example with a single acorn on a jacket.

Bringing this thread from the past.

Here is my top-rare KM lanyard, unfortunately incomplete as 4th grade should have gilded shell with wings or torpedo.
Below is the complete one from eMedals inventory, unfortunately sold way before I saw it :-(

Something not generally known:

German Marksmanship Lanyards may be earned by US Army personnel, but only worn by enlisted men (E1 - E9) on their dress uniforms.

Other US Military Branches I don't know.
