Heer Generalmajor Tunic

This is one of the nicest condition General officer tunics that I’ve ever encountered, a perfectly preserved closet queen for those of you who insist on mint condition.  The base tunic is a private purchase six button front with scalloped and pleated pockets made from a very fine whipcord field gray wool (with more of a gray hue).  There are loops for four badges on the left breast along with ribbon bar loops, and loops on the right breast pocket for a DKiG.  The buttons are all maker matched gold pebbled and mint.  The insignia is all textbook bullion with almost no age tone, with the exception of the collar tabs in which the gold wire has just a slight dark tone developing.  The tunic shows no evidence of prior insignia.  It is un-named and has no tailor labels.  It is a smaller tunic, but fits a standard mannequin torso without struggling to button it.

Heer Generalmajor Named Tunic

Lightweight field grey field tunic named to Generalmajor Alexander Bourquin, commander of the 114th Jaeger Division.  The tunic comes with a letter from the Stars & Stripes combat correspondent who brought the tunic back from the war, as well as about 50 pages copied from Bourquin’s personnel files.  The tunic shows quite a bit of wear and fading from heavy field use, with numerous small holes and snags and a couple stains on the rear.  Insignia consists of gold bullion breast eagle, gold wire collar tabs and celleon shoulderboards that are of the slip-on variety (with screwpost buttons and tailor-made bridles).   The right sleeve features a crudely hand-sewn cloth Edelweiss sleeve badge. The tunic was tailored in Prague, Czechoslovakia, as shown on the tailor tag and noted in the letter from the correspondent.

Heer General’s Tunic

Old-style, 8 button front tunic for a Generalleutnant in the Heer.  Tunic is manufactured from a field grey, high quality, very fine cotton tricot weave material with absolutely no holes, snags or abrasions.  It is an early style with slanted bottom pockets and has exaggerated, high sleeve cuffs. All buttons are original (one has been replaced, but the original is in a pocket). There are loops for three breast badges and a ribbon bar.  From inspection I believe the insignia may have been restored, but it is all beautiful, matching textbook celleon. Boards have had an additional pip that was removed.  The interior lining shows some age and has stains around the armpits.  There is a laundry tag hand-sewn with the name “Folttmann” and is believed to be Generalleutnant Josef Folttmann who in the early years of war was an infantry commander.  Excellent display piece.

Heer General’s Panzer Wrap Uniform

A full uniform for a Generalmajor in the armored units, or Panzer service, consisting of a wrap around field jacket and field trousers.  Both jacket and trousers are private purchase, tailor-made from a fine, black doeskin wool with very high quality detail in construction throughout.  The wrap (jacket) has gold bullion cord piping around the collar (General officer wraps have also been observed with pink or red piping and with no piping).  General officer collar tabs and shoulderboards are in gold wire and bullion with an even age and tone. The breast eagle is rendered in gold celleon with black highlights, over a black backing.  There are many loops on the right breast for awards and a ribbon bar.  The left breast has loops for a German Cross.  Field trousers are of standard design for armoured service with tapered legs and tie ribbons at the bottom edge.  Red lampassen (broad General officer stripes) are tailored into the pants, providing a stunning display.  Both the tunic and trousers have evidence of name tags that were removed, but there is no knowledge as to the name of the General officer.  Additional, extensive detail photographs of the interior of the wrap and trousers are available to those with serious interest.

Very early, 1934 tailor-made General officer riding breeches by the famous German tailor firm, Holters.  Breeches are stone gray, tricot fabric with light grey leather reinforcement around the front knee area.  Ankle closure consists of a vertical double eyelet lace-up and a horizontal three button closure.  The broad, red General Officer side stripe adornments (lampassen) trim the side of each leg and are tailored around the side slash pocket openings.  The cloth exterior of the breeches are in average to good condition, with minor nips and snags and one 2.5cm hole in the back of the right leg.  The leather reinforcement shows some soiling and age, but the leather itself is still very nice and supple.  The breeches are named on the Holters tailor tag.  Overall, a very early pre-war set of General’s riding breeches showing some honest wear and age.

Heer General’s Tunic & Breeches

Complete uniform tunic and breeches for a Generalleutnant in the Heer.  Tunic is old style 8 button front with slanted side pockets.  It was period upgraded from field grade to General officer rank and had red piping expertly added down the front panel as well as a field grey rayon collar.  The insignia is all bullion and matching in age and wear.  The single large, Generals size pip has unfortunately been painted gold (likely post-war collector or veteran addition) and the insignia also has touch ups, which is why the price is lower than market.  There are three loops for a ribbon bar above the left breast pocket, as well as loops and a screwback hole on the breast pocket for several combat awards.  The breeches have also been upgraded with the addition of the General’s lampassen (broad red stripes) and have the remains of the tailor tag/owners name tag which shows a date of 1937.  Both the tunic and breeches are a larger, portly size, the tunic having a large waist, neck with short arms.  The breeches are approximately a size 36 U.S. in the waist and show a few snags and abrasions around the crotch area from wear.  The lower eyelets where the pants tuck into the boots have some rust, but the exposed eyelets still have all the enamel paint intact.  Nice, early original uniform.  Contact for additional information.

A full uniform (tunic and pants) for the rank of Oberfuhrer (senior colonel) in the SS Polizei division.  This was a unique rank to the SS that was between Colonel and General, yet entitled the officer many of the privileges of a General officer.  What makes this uniform incredibly rare is the SS style collar Oberfuhrer collar tabs on police-green backing.  This was instituted in February of 1942 but rarely worn as most officers in the police who belonged to the SS preferred the black backed SS officer tabs, rather than the green backing.  Both tunic and breeches have matching name tags and police stampings, but the officers name has been scratched off the tags.  Complete with officers bandeleir, leather cartouche and officers aguilette.  Very rare and in excellent condition.  (click on photos for additional/larger images)

Waffen SS General Sepp Dietrich’s Leather Coat

Leather overcoat and shoulderboards attributed to well known Waffen SS General Sepp Dietrich.  Shoulderboards are of the Oberstgruppenfuhrer rank (three frosted rank pips) in gold bullion and silver cording and are of the  slip-on variety (they have been removed from the coat due to fragility of the underlay fabric).  Non-regulation gold General officer screwpost buttons for shoulderboard attachment, all others are regulation silver, as was correct for the SS.  Dietrich of course, ‘personalized’ his uniforms incorporating some Heer traditions by utilizing gold to indicate General rank as per the army (Heer) style, instead of the silver regulated by the Waffen SS.  There is a dagger hanger also present inside the pocket flap. Overcoat exterior, sleeve lining and inner lining all show much wear and field use.  Coat and separate inside liner both are maker marked.  Comes with several pages of provenance from the veteran who captured this from Dietrich’s home (only one sample page is shown).  Many period photos exist of Dietrich wearing this very coat.  Excellent opportunity to own a very rare piece of history attributed to a charismatic and highly respected General officer of World War Two (Sepp Dietrich was commander of the Liebstandarte Adolf Hitler, which was Hitlers honorary SS bodyguard.

German Luftwaffe Generalmajor Uniform and Visor

Extremely rare General’s Fliegerbluse (Flyers Blouse) tunic, pants and visor cap.  Tunic has initials inside, but no name.  Research, based on initials shows three Luftwaffe Generals during WW2 with these initials.  Based on my research, the tunic size and award loops, it may have belonged to a well known Paratroop General.  Tunic is a very finely made lighter weight gabardine in excellent condition with the exception of a few very small holes (about pencil point size) that can only be seen upon very close inspection.  Tunic is of typical fliegerbluse cut and has a dagger hanger loop in the left pocket. Boards and tabs are both bullion, breast eagle is celleon.  Gold bullion piping surrounds the collar, but is smaller than regulation.  Pants are a heavier weight gabardine showing some use and minor field repairs.  White Lampassen are still nice and bright and free from staining.  Visor may be of government stock, in lesser grade gabardine with no maker mark.  Bullion insignia shows much age, toning and some mold in places.  Entire uniform is more of a field quality rather than service dress and all pieces match very well to each other.  Medals, belt and holster are not included in sale but may be purchased separately with uniform.

U.S. Navy Admirals visor cap

Beautiful bullion embroidered visor bill and eagle/crest.  Very hard to find this combination as it is a pre-war hat (with the eagle facing to the right).  The inside of the cap has “STONE” written on the sweatband.  Admiral Everett Stone was the Executive Officer aboard the U.S.S. California during the attack on Pearl Harbor.  Stone was also the first Captain of the battleship U.S.S. Wisconsin.  Excellent hat and a nice piece of history.

Heer Generalfeldmarschall shoulderboards

1st pattern 1938-1940 pair of matching shoulderboards for a Generalfeldmarschall in the German Army.  Batons are stamped of flat stock silver in the first pattern and also have a silver frosting applied.  Shoulderboards are the earlier style gold bullion with silver inner cord and are of the very rare five loop variant.  These are a larger set of boards and were probably used on a greatcoat or leathercoat and do show some slight arching and bending from wear.  Boards are the slip-on variety and also show wear from button attachment.  There is a very even ageing to both the boards and batons.  An excellent, original set of GFM boards.

Heer Generalfeldmarschall shoulderboards

These have gone back in the collection, but pictures will remain up for those who want reference. Matching pair of slip-on shoulderboards for an early Generalfeldmarschall in the Army (Heer).  This is the 1st pattern of crossed batons which exhibit a design going back into the 1800’s.  This pattern was officially worn from 1938 up until 1940 when they were replaced by a more detailed design reflective of the Nazi era. (For more detail on the baton patterns and dates, see Army GFM Insignia).  The shoulderboards are of the Reichsheer pattern with the non-visible red underlay.  Nicely aged and toned early gold bullion and silver cords with the silver darkening towards the end of the boards. Batons are in excellent condition and still show a nice, silver even appearance.  Werner von Blomberg was the only Generalfeldmarschall from 1930 to 1940 though this pattern was also utilized by a few of the later promoted field marshal’s. GFM von Leeb in particular seemed to favor this pattern, perhaps due to his dislike of the Nazi party.  It is unknown who this pair may have belonged to.

Heer General Officer Visor Pre-1942

Highly desirable, top of the line ErelPrivat” General officers visor cap.  Cap body is made from a very fine, high quality doeskin wool and is in absolutely mint condition.  Piping is in a nice, bright gold celleon which contrasts well with the aged gold bullion chincord.  Wreath and cockade are hand embroidered silver bullion, national emblem is aluminum.  Interior of cap is the typical mint green lining of a Privat and is extremely clean.  The only issue is a cracked fracture in the sweatband at the forehead.  Tissue paper is still stuffed between the sweatband and the lining and the sweatband is brittle (as a result, no under-the-hood shots).
