Wehrmacht (Heer) Officer’s Tunic & Belt as intended for an ‘Oberleutnant’ of the Kradschützen (Motorcycle troops).
The German Officer’s service tunic followed the basic design of the Enlisted Men/NCO’s field blouse, the most readily visible difference (besides the insignia) are the turned up French cuffs. This is a nice quality, ‘privately purchased’ M36-style field-grey wool tunic with dark-green collar. The buttons are all the aluminum pebbled examples. The tunic is complete with all original applied insignia, including a nicely hand-embroiderd breast-eagle, shoulder boards of the sew-in type and nicely machine-sewn officer’s type collar tabs. Both the collar tabs and shoulder-boards are piped in the white ‘Truppenfarbe’ (branch colour) indicating the ‘Infanterie’ (Infantry). One pip is attached to the shoulder-boards indicating an ‘Oberleutnant’ within an ‘Infantry-Regiment’. There are loops to the wearer’s left breast-pocket to attach various medals. The tunic is complete with internal dagger-hangers. The tunic is in overall good used condition with some minor moth holes/age and wear toning, see photos for details.
Nice original early white piped Infantry officer’s tunic in very good condition! Including with the tunic is an worn Wehrmacht parade belt & buckle, has moth damage on backside ( condition see photo’s). Marked with size mark 100 (100cm).
