WWII German Tunic and Breeches for Reich Level Political Leader-This is a direct veteran family acquisition. The veteran picked it up in Austria at the end of the war. We will supply the buyer with the veteran info plus a very interesting quote from his diary. Let’s start with the tunic, which is produced in ribbed wool in the brown shade typical of Political Leader tunics. There is very minor wear and discoloration but no damage. There are four pockets, with the breast pockets being pleated with scalloped flaps and the hip pockets being the patch type, non-pleated with straight flaps. There is a four-button closure, with all of the buttons being the gilt finished political type. The collar is piped in gold celleon down the front and lower edges. Hand applied to the collar are a set of beautiful red velvet collar tabs with gold celleon eagle and oak leaf cluster. Each is piped in gold celleon. These tabs indicate that the rank of the wearer was an “bereichsleiter or “zone leader”. There is a red wool armband (stitched around the top only) on the left sleeve, this is in fine condition with minor discoloration. This is piped at the top and bottom edge in gold celleon. The swastika and disc are piped in gold bullion. The oak leaves are 16mm wide. This is for a “leader of a department”. The left breast pocket has loops for one medal (one of the loops is owner applied). There are loops for a medium sized ribbon bar as well (same, added by the owner). The interior is fully lined in gold rayon that is excellent. There are pockets on either side of the interior. The sleeves are fully lined in striped rayon. It is a size medium. The breeches are produced in material closely matching the tunic. They also have minor wear and discoloration. The lower legs are zippered. One of the zippers is missing the pull tab but it functions fine. The other one is missing the zipper buckle. There are front and rear pockets with scalloped, buttoned flaps. There is a four button fly with an addition button plus a built-in belt at the waist. There is also a watch pocket. There are cinch straps at the hips with metal buckles. The buttons for the suspenders are present but the straps are missing. The interior has a few small tears to the lining. There is some hand written info only. The waist is a size 32 and the legs are 38” long. Very good condition overall!
