Depot Grafenreuth - Waffen-SS field boots - unissued

Description

Fantastic Waffen-SS EM/NCO combat boots which are available on the market for the first time. They were never issued and found at a farm near Flossenbürg. It is a known fact that the military storehouse "Außenlager Grafenreuth" near Flossenbürg was plundered by locals straight after the war. Sometimes, original gear and uniforms still turns up at farms in the area. This pair of boots was found when opening the wooden floor of a farmhouse about 10 years ago. They were never cleaned or polished and are exactly as found!

-

Textbook boots from brown leather. Both boots are clearly marked with the same "Reichsbetriebsnummer" and several size markings to the side. Size markings to the leather sole as well.
Complete nails! Stil put together with an old cord.

Fox markings and dust which will clean off easily. Never cleaned and exactly as found. The leather is still flesible but not too soft. Some insect bites to the leather. Please see pictures. These boots will certainly come out nicely if you want to clean them!

These boots came of the same farm as all other unissued boots available at this auction. No SS depot markings!

Sole length: 30,5cm.
