M36/40 issue tunic modified for officer, dark green collar has been modified with two metal hooks and made taller, collar tabs are hand embroidered in silver grey wire with two thin light green twisted bars on each, tabs are machine sewn to collar. Shoulder boards are sewn in with light grey braid with gold metal rank pip with gold metal regt. numbers on each with light green underlay, regt. numbers and pips have tarnished some and lost a little of the gold finish over time. Breast eagle is standard officer quality, hand embroidered in silver aluminum bullion wire on dark green and is hand sewn to tunic. Jager sleeve patch is hand sewn to the right sleeve, machine woven pattern on dark green wool and is nice quality. Iron Cross 2nd class ribbon in 2nd button hole with nice set of loops for ribbon bar above left breast pocket with three sets of loops for three badges. Tunic has four patch pleated pockets, with five button front, all buttons are the grey green painted type with pebbled finish. The inside is lined with the light grey ribbed cotton material and is marked with size markings with H40 for date, also has edge weapon hanger added. Tunic shows only minor wartime wear and age, does not look like it was used very much. The 100th Jager Div. was destroyed at Stalingrad, the second 100th Jager Div. was formed in 1943, and was in Czechoslovakia at war end. Very fine tunic but does have a few very small moth nips that are very hard to see, nothing distracting. High Exc. + $1650.00 RARE
