WWII German Army Administration General Major Named Waffenrock with Trousers and eReL Visor Cap-That is a mouthful! This grouping is in fantastic condition overall so let's get right into it. The walking out dress tunic, a private purchase example, is produced in super soft field grey wool that as mentioned, is in excellent condition. There is ever so slight discoloration and wear in a few spots but, trust me, I am being picky. There is an eight button closure and all buttons are gilt finished pebbled metal. The dark green badge cloth collar is piped at the front and lower edges with green piping. There are administration general collar tabs of green badge cloth piped in red. The general insignia is gold bullion and gorgeous. They have been hand applied to the collar. The sew in shoulder boards are produced in a gold celleon/silver with black stripe braid. There is a red backing with an additional green backing. Also seen is the HV cipher, which is Heeresverwaltung or army administration. The hand applied army breast eagle is gold bullion and flat wire with some toning that really makes it stand out. It is over a dark green wool backing. Also piped in green are the dark green badge cloth French cuffs and the tail vent. The cuffs have green badge cloth tabs which are piped in red. Each has a general insignia in gold bullion and a gilt finished pebbled metal button. There are loops on the left breast for two awards and a medium sized ribbon bar. The interior is fully lined in green rayon that is excellent. There is a waist belt with a plated metal buckle. There is a pocket on the left side which has information to include the name of the owner and tailor. The owner is "K. Küthe" and this jacket was purchased in 1939 from the firm of Averbeck & Broskamp of Berlin. A large tailor tag is seen in the neck area. There is a strap with a plated metal snap hook as well as the slot for an edged weapon. The tunic is a size medium. Onto the strait legged trousers, which are produced in grey wool that is excellent. Each leg has a wide general stripe of red badge cloth. There are slash type hip pockets, a watch fob pocket and a single rear pocket with a scalloped flap. There is a four button fly with an additional hook and loop metal clasp at the waist. All of the buttons for the suspenders are present. The waist measures 36" and the legs are 42" long. Now, the visor cap which is a super high quality eReL example. It is produced in super soft, field grey doe skin wool that is excellent. The top panel is piped in gilt aluminum mesh as is the lower edge of the dark green badge cloth center band. The upper edge of the center band is piped in green cloth. The insignia is all metal (tombak) with the gilt finish worn showing the base metal. It is gorgeous, just missing most of the finish. The double chin cord in gold bullion with gilt finished pebbled metal buttons holding it in place. The black vulkanfibre visor is excellent, with the underside finished in an orange brown hue. The interior is fully lined in gold rayon which has minor discoloration from use. There is a mostly intact rhomboid shaped moisture shield. The nomenclature is worn but partly legible. The tan leather sweatband is excellent, with minor discoloration and wear from use. It is embossed with the eReL Stirnshutz logo. The sweatband is perforated at the forehead area. The visor is a size 56. Overall excellent condition and ready for a display!
