Hptm. Schöbitz (Knight's Cross) - Heer Gebirgsjäger field tunic
Hauptmann Erst Schöbitz (30.11.1915 - 12.10.2003) served as a Gebirgsjäger after several years as a Luftwaffe officer flying for Aufklärungsgruppe 12. Quite an unusual, however, very successful career. Schöbitz was awarded the German Cross on 26.11.1943 and the Knight's Cross on 5.9.1944 serving with 11(H)/Aufklärungsgruppe 12.
Please see other lots to Schöbitz in this catalogue. Besides his personal field tunic, we have his photo grouping and visor cap available.
Absolutely untouched Heer field tunic for Gebirgsjäger Hauptmann Schöblitz. The tunic comes in nicely worn condition and without any damge. All insignia are definitely period time attached.
Hand-embroidered officer's breast eagle period time attached by hand. Machine-attached officer's tabs. Hand-attached Gebirgsjäger shoulder boards for a Hauptmann in green color.
Full originally attached buttons. Fine silk lining. No name tag but a "Wilhelm Welhausen" tailor's tag.
Medium size. Condition 2. "Been there" and "untouched". Rare!
