Army Artillery "Der Spiess" Oberfeldwebel "Old Style" Service Tunic
Model 1928/1935 Old Style tunic originated from the uniform of the Reichswehr. Very fine quality tunic with dark green wool collar with grey green wip cord wool body with two patch pleated breast pockets with two lower slash type pockets with flaps, has eight button front, all buttons are the pebbled type with nickel silver finish. Tunic is piped in bright red down the front. Collar has 1st pattern NCO silver plated braid around top edge of collar with bright red collar tabs with silver plated wire Litzen with three red bars on each, NCO braid and collar tabs are machine sewn to collar, the silver plated NCO braid and the tabs are tarnished but still look very nice. Shoulder boards are the sewn in type and made of dark green wool with bright red wool piping with silver plated NCO braid, also tarnished, has two silver rank pips and also had at one time Regt. numbers between the pips, tunic was missing the pips near shoulder board buttons when I got this tunic, holes were there and so was the outline of the pips, so these I added. Breast eagle is the first pattern, silver flat wire on grey and mounted on grey green wool and hand sewn to tunic. Tunic comes with Marksmanship Lanyard Grade 2 with one acorn with 1st pattern shield. Tunic has loops for small ribbon bar and loops for two badges. Has two rows of 1st pattern NCO aluminum braid around each cuff for “Der Spiess”. The inside is lined with dark grey green cotton linen material with one inside breast pocket and also has slit cut for age weapon hanger, also has owners name on white tag sewn in top of collar “Krusdich”. Overall tunic shows light wartime wear with some light age spots, right cuff on the backside has what looks like blood stain. Colors are still nice and bright and will display very nice. Very hard pattern tunic to find these days. Exc. + $1450.00 RARE
