INCREDIBLY COMPREHENSIVE Grouping for Panzer Officer Paul Walter Teuber-We picked this incredible grouping up directly from the family of the officer (grandson in law). This could very well be the most comprehensive grouping from a document standpoint that we have ever had to offer. I could not possibly list everything here! There are documents from as early as 1930 (vaccination report) to as late as 1965 (a letter of family confirmation). Award certificates include the Czech Annexation medal, awarded 17-1-1940, the EKII dated 4-12-1942 (in Tunisia!), the Afrika cuff title awarded 31-8-1943, the wound badge in black on 1-8-42, the wound badge in silver on 25-1-43 and the Panzer Assault Badge awarded on 5-8-42. Other documents include his drivers license in 1946 and his German Life Saving certificates (3 of them). There are promotion documents plus other letters. His entire service history is spelled out in a document dated 29 November 1962. He was born on 5-12-1918 in Sandweisen (Gleiwitz). He served in both Russia and Africa. His main troop service started in December of 1938 in 14/IR 84. This continued through October of 1939. Starting in July of 1942 he was assigned to Panzer Jäger Ersatz Abteilung 3. He was promoted to leutnant on 1-11-1940 and oberleutnant 1-11-1942. Please see the list for the full details. Another interesting document is a three-page report he wrote on an operation conducted in Poland in the fall of 1939 (all in German of course). There are a few photos including one of the veteran as an older gentleman. He worked for the Reichsbahn just after the war. He worked as both a translator and in a freight room. This is just the tip of the iceberg! There is so much to see here, it is incredible. Of course, there is his tunic as well! This is his original Model 1936 service tunic, which he modified as needed. This included replacing the insignia when he was promoted and shortening the length as needed. It is produced in field grey wool. It shows very minor discoloration and wear from use. The tunic has a five-button closure. There are four pleated pockets with scalloped flaps. The collar is dark green badge cloth. The collar tabs are hand applied. They are matte silver bullion over dark green badge cloth with pink litzen. The shoulder boards are hand sewn on. As we mentioned, the owner did this himself. They are matte grey flat wire over pink badge cloth. There is a single pip and a “P” cipher indicating he was a Panzer Jäger 1st lieutenant. The breast eagle is from when he was an NCO. It is bright silver flat wire over green and has been hand applied. The left sleeve has a fantastic AFRIKA cuff title. As mentioned, the document for this is included as well. The left breast pocket has loops for two awards. There is a hole where the bottom loops for one of the awards was pulled off. The Czecg Annexation ribbon with a Prague bar is also through a set of loops. There is a ribbon for the EKII as well. The interior is partially lined in tan cloth. There are a few stains, holes and areas of wear. There are ink stamps for the sizing on the right closure seam. It is a size medium. Also included is a very interesting, Third Reich period wooden cigarette case that belonged to Teuber. An amazing grouping!
