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!
