WWII German TeNo Police Combat Tunic for Anwarter, RARE-What a handsome and rarely encountered specimen! This is model 1940 type combat tunic with four scalloped and pleated pockets. It is made of a thick napped blue-green wool seen on both Police and TeNo uniforms. It has a set of black ribbed wool slip on boards. This, combined with the machine applied blank collar tabs, is for the rank of candidate (anwarter). The left sleeve has a beautifully machine applied BeVo police eagle in green. This, combined with a factory machine applied TeNo cuff title clearly identifies this as a rare TeNo tunic for the Schutz police (see pages 605-607 of Volume 2 of Uniforms, Organization & History of the German Police). Overall the condition of this size 42 blouse is near excellent with light soiling and some tracking in a few places including the back of the collar. There is one set of badge loops for an award. The interior has a partial green rayon lining. It has a single bandage pocket. There is a large TeNo insignia stamp along with the size 52. This one should have been in the book!

Please note that any "accessories" (i.e. medals, badges, belts etc.) are NOT included unless stated in description!
