SD uniform grouping to an SD-Unterscharführer

Description

Uniform grouping to an SD-Unterscharführer containing his uniform, breeches, the brown shirt and a black tie.

Very rare and interesting Waffen-SS M43 field tunic which was period time modified into an SD one by changing the collar (open lapel). Vertikal bars were added to the upper and lower M43 style pockets and give the the more "early" look. Interestingly, the cloth they used is absolutely matching. The collar tabs, sleeve eagle and sleeve diamond were attached by machine. There are no signs of previously attached insignia. The eagle is a nice BEVO machine-woven pattern. 

Grey silk lining with original "SS-BW" depot markings as well as size stamps. Furthermore, stamped with an "M". A few period time modifications were done to the liner, too. Please see pictures.
The tunic comes with all buttons and free of any damage. Hand-attached War Merit Cross ribbon.

A great tunic in good condition. Medium size. 

A matching period time brown shirt as worn by SD troops. All buttons in place. Including a separate collar. "40" size stamped. Period time cuff links attached.
No damage. Medium size.

Nicely worn depot issued breeches. White cotton and grey HBT silk lining. Including all buttons and straps as well as an old set of suspenders. No moth damage. A few markings which are however hard to read.
Waist: 90cm. Length: 101cm.

Black silk tie. Typical Third Reich period time. No label.

"44" dated and "Reichsbetriebsnummer" stamped belt. "90" length stamped. Signs of use and one crack to the belt. Length: 92cm. Iron buckle. RZM 36/42 SS stamped. Original finish silver finish. Some rust.
