Grouping to Leutnant Karl Daut serving with Infanterie-Regiment 10, 302 and Grenadier Regiment 519. It comes in a period time large size luggage (damaged to the hinges).
The M40 field tunic part of this grouping is 100% untouched and shown on a few period time photos part of this grouping. He wears exactly the same tunic on the photo inside his Soldbuch for example. Another photo shows Daut sitting on the wall. Again, it is 100% the same tunic and even the same shoulder boards. Another photo shows this tunic being worn as a EM rank so without the NCO tress being added after this promotion. All photos show this M40 tunic with the dark green M36 eagle which is still attached to the tunic!
