UNIFORMS #49711 Hitler Youth Ascot With Leather Thong Knot

This ascot is a silky type fabric that extends downward over the shoulders and then was retained by the Hitler Youth by a woven brown leather knot.

The ascot has a definite camouflage pattern; one wonders why an ascot would have camo, or if this is even an "ascot" at all.

The knot accompanies the ascot and the ascot is marked 9.

Not an easy item to find here.

Mint Minus. $150.00

UNIFORMS #48758C Panzer Feldwebel Parade Dress Tunic

This panzer parade dress is quite a sight as we do not often see these beautiful pink piped uniforms.

The uniform is made of the finest of whipcord and is basically flawless except for on small hole that has a period repair in the button hole side of the flap near the bottom. Otherwise the tunic looks to be fine throughout. The tunic has eight pebbled aluminum buttons and it is beautifully piped in pink throughout the lapels. The pink piping extends to the sleeves with the beautiful parade dress syndrome having tress around two buttons with litzen backed in pink. The collar is also pink piped with aluminum litzen on pink backing. There is also aluminum tress that runs around the edges of the collar. The NCO shoulder boards are the sewn-in variety having pink cord. They are trimmed with tress and in the center have the numbers 21 over 5 and also the retaining buttons are marked with “4”. The breast eagle is of officer quality and is quite beautiful having black highlights in the bullion thread forming the shape of the open winged eagle with wreathed swastika.

There are loops for a ribbon bar and two medal loops one of which has a wound badge attached to it.

The inside lining is a green silk variety in perfect condition throughout. Although there is no tailor label this tunic is tailor made. The shoulder boards would indicate that the original wearer was a member of the 5th Recon of the 11th Panzer Division.

A very rare tunic and an outstanding addition to any uniform collection.

UNIFORMS #48756C Captain Field Artillery Regiment 118-6th Mountain Division Tunic

This tunic is a late war woolen example being in very fine condition throughout. The tunic is a six button front with four pockets each having flaps. All buttons are an olive drab pebbled style. I don’t see any mothing or problems on the uniform. The left sleeve contains an officer quality edelweiss insignia. The insignia is quite beautiful with all of its bullion work to the flower with its colored center. The breast eagle is also quite beautiful being extremely well done.

The shoulder boards reflect the rank of captain with their aluminum cord and the regiment of 118 in numerals on each sewn-in board. The litzen have the red thread in the middle indicating artillery. Under the right pocket are loops for three medals. The tunic is tailor made from the tailor Petrasch of Klagenfurt.

Additionally there is an Iron Cross and Russian ribbon in the button loops.

The inside pocket carries the name of the same tailor and it is written LTN. Harslarher and dated 16.2.1943. There is also a period document in the pocket that I originally thought was a driver's licence, but my expert friend Mr. Goldsmith has kindly set me straight. Here is what he had to say:

I've just noticed the mountain artillery tunic for a Leutnant that you have included in your latest update and wanted to make a small correction. The typewritten document that was included in the pocket with the military driving licence is actually a certificate that states that Leutnant Haßlacher was entitled to wear the Iron Cross first class [E. K. I], having been informed of the award by his commanding officer Hauptmann Jöschl. The document states that a formal entry will be made in his paybook when the award certificate arrives and that this serves as a temporary proof of entitlement until that time. No doubt in February 1945 the Germans had a lot of other things to worry about, but they still had to try to ensure that all documentation was in order! Joking aside, I do know that the Military Police would stop soldiers and could ask them to provide proof that they were entitled to the decorations that they were wearing, as the penalties for breaking the regulations in this regard could be severe.

This is a very very good tunic here and assumedly research could be done on the original wearer. Tunics of this caliber are very seldom seen and are very sought after.

UNIFORMS #47561C Luftwaffe Flight Leutant Fleigerbluse With Breeches

This Flight Blouse is the pre-war style having the curved side pockets with no flaps and no cuffs. The Blouse is single-breasted with four-button fly front and being short waisted. It is of blue-gray wool being in fine condition with only one insignificant flaw to the right upper section of the right pocket, but it is more a scuff or pull to the material than it is a hole. The tunic features a very fine bullion Luftwaffe breast eagle on the right breast. The collar is piped in aluminum bullion. The Leutnant shoulder boards are the sewn-in variety with yellow flight colored bottom and rows of bullion tress at the top. The matching collar tabs have flight yellow backings with one bullion eagle over a half bullion oak leaf wreath. The left collar tab was resewn sometime in the past. The tabs are piped around the edges with aluminum cord. The left cuff shows signs that there was a cuff title originally on the tunic. The cuff title is gone to time.There are loops for three medals. There is a 1st Class Iron Cross and a Black Wound Badge attached to two of the three loops. The tunic inside is lined with a black silk-like material in perfect condition and having one inside breast pocket. There are no tailor labels.

UNIFORMS #46119 Government Official's Tunic, Greatcoat, Breeches And Slacks

This complete Government Official's suite outfit has to be the most impressive uniform that we have had the pleasure to offer. Each piece of the uniform is in immaculate mint, "as new" condition. The garments all bear the same tailor label being "Berke Chucher Schöder, Berlin W8". Additionally, the original owner's name "Hildebrandt", and the year "1939" is labeled within the inside pockets. The deep blue color fabric is all a high-quality doeskin, with the tunic and the greatcoat being double-breasted. Both of these pieces are equipped with the Government Official bullion sleeve insignia consisting of an open-wing G.O. eagle facing to the viewer's left and grasping a wreathed swastika in its tangs. Surrounding the eagle is a bullion wreath of oak leaves and acorns. The workmanship to these insignias is simply outstanding. The collars are piped with a silver cord. The sewn-in shoulder boards are of a woven bullion on white wool base. They feature an applied patinated silver eagle with swastika in the center. The eagle appears to be unique to this branch. The boards also have two silver pips. The buttons of both outer garments are quite impressive, featuring a raised half-open wing eagle clutching a swastika. The reverse of the Greatcoat has a decorative sewn-in matching cloth belt with four matching buttons. The insides of the Greatcoat are elegantly lined in a soft gray silk. The insides of the Tunic are lined in a black silk. The Tunic is also equipped with an aluminum bullion aiguillette. These pieces seem to be about a size "36" and are quite long, indicating a very tall man.

Accompanying the tunic and greatcoat are matching riding breeches and trousers with straight legs. Both of these pieces are also tailor-labeled, and both are of long length, again, indicating a tall former owner. Both pants are equipped with white cord side stripes.

The rank of this Government Official uniform is designated as "Group II Grade A1a". With the knowledge of the original wearer's name, there is always the possibility that this officer's career could be researched.

After his appointment as Foreign Minister in 1938, Joachim v. Ribbentrop established two different branches of personnel within the Foreign Office - Diplomatic, who were diplomats per se and Government Officials who were associated with the other related functions of the Foreign Office and Ministry of the Interior. While the Diplomats reported directly to v. Ribbentrop, the Government Officials were concerned with internal government administration and were ultimately responsible to the Minister of the Interior, Himmler.

The acquisition of this uniform is a unique opportunity. It remains in a breathless mint state and has an extraordinary look about it. An ultra-rare absolute original piece of history here.

This piece comes with the original box. The box is intact except for one side of the lid and constructed of black cardboard with green speckles.

UNIFORMS #28069 SS Bandsman's Drummer Corps Shoulder Swallows

These swallows are quite impressive and are in an unissued state. This pair of shoulder swallows is extremely beautiful, having crescent shape and being approximately 9 inches in length. There is 7/8 inch aluminum bullion tress, which is run in a striped manner, vertically.

At the bottom, in a curve, is a finish tress of the same width. The base material is black cotton, which acts as a field in the areas that are open between the tress.

The reverse of the swallow’s nest is covered in a black, silk-like material. There are five black steel hooks attached to the curved edge of the reverse and they, in turn, would have gone over loops on the wearer’s uniform shoulder. One of the swallow’s nesses has the original issue tag on it. It is an off-white paper with black printing. It has the letter “B” and “RZM” and the black SS runes. There is a rubber stamped number, “212” and the numbers on the bottom lines are “011464.”

These swallows ness are extremely impressive and would really go well displayed with some other SS music related memorabilia. This pair of swallows ness is identical to the example shown in the Angolia, “Cloth Insignia of the SS” book, on Page 174, upper.

A great opportunity here to own an SS item in mint condition and something that is really rare.

UNIFORMS #32324C Imperial Large Bullion and Brocade Dress Belt

I believe this massive dress belt was worn with the formal Imperial Army uniform. The belt is a fine silver bullion being about 1¾ inches wide and having twin gray stripes which run the length.

The reverse of the belt is covered in a white cotton style material that is largely free of soiling.

Attached to the belt are a catch and buckle which appear to be silver plated. At each end of the belt there is a very large bullion style tassel. The cap of the tassel is over three inches wide and the silver bullion tassels are almost ten inches in length. A very impressive item here.

The bullion belt shows some age and some wear but there are no frays or problems with it. This must have looked really great when an Imperial officer arrived at a formal reception or a parade dress occasion.

Excellent. $695.00
