Heer M41 Feldgendarmerie field tunic - Oberfeldwebel

Description

An M41 field tunic to a Feldgendarmerie Oberfeldwebel in nicely worn condition. Hand-attached Iron Cross 2nd Class ribbon as well as two pair of loops for two awards.

Early shoulder boards for an Oberfeldwebel (triangle shaped tip). One is moth eaten ot the bottom but both show only minor moth damage to the top. The collar tabs with orange color (Feldgendarmerie/Wehrkreis) are attached by hand. The NCO tress is attached by hand. The collar was period time changed into a dark green one for fashion reason. That was done a lot. The grey collar was not very famous. For the same reason, a machine-embroidered breast eagle with dark green backing was period time attached by hand.

Complete buttons, cotton lining. Size markings as well as a "B41" depot marking. A dagger hanger was added period time and the 3 holes for belt looks were closed. A lot of nice details which make this tunic very personal.

There is some moth damage. Larger moth holes were repaired. Condition 2-
Medium size.
