This private purchase jacket is produced in a top quality, super soft blue/grey wool that is excellent, with only minor wear from use. The jacket is double breasted with two rows of three silver pebbled aluminum buttons. The one closure is a chain with two silver pebbled buttons. The lay down collar is piped along the front and lower edges in a silver aluminum rope twist piping. The sew-in shoulder boards are produced with silver aluminum rows over yellow badge cloth, each with two gilt finished metal pips. This is for flight/paratrooper personnel with the rank of hauptmann (equivalent to a captain). There is a gorgeous, drooptail Luftwaffe Officer breast eagle of silver bullion over blue/grey badge cloth. It is hand applied, we believe by a collector. The left side of the tunic has two pairs of loops for awards and long ribbon bar. The interior is fully lined in blue rayon that is excellent. The sleeves are lined in white rayon. Inside the left sleeve is a post war ink stamp. There is a tailor tag in the pocket which has the name of the owner, as well as the name of the tailor. The handwritten name of the owner is "Hauptmann Prellwitz". The date is 7.4.1936. A large tailor tag is seen in the neck area, this was produced by “A. Mania.”, which was located in Kiel. Excellent condition overall!
