Complete and atmospheric parka, 3 button front no lower pockets, completely fur lined, has seen moderate to heavy use, with repairs here and there, as used in the battles for Kharkov, interestingly SS-Untersturmfuhrer infantry shoulder boards have been fitted, both have holes pierced through them matching where LAH cyphers have pins located!
Excellent condition with minimal wear, full nap remains throughout, matching BeVo insignia is very neatly hand applied, the skull has some rust staining no doubt from being left in the returning veterans kit up against a metal object in the damp,cap has been 'pinched' across the crown with a few stiches inside, liner is in a black cotton and size stamped in white.
Superb condition one of the best I have seen!
99.9% paint remaining to the gorget itself, and even approx 80% silver remaining to the chains, maker marked to the rear center clip.
Finished in a green felt like wool normally this type of wool is very attractive for moths, however this example remains surprisingly bite free! Hand applied insignia to include the soutache, both eagle and roundel are hand embroidered bullion with no oxidisation, inside shows light even wear finished with a black artificial silk liner and thin supple forehead sweat band .
Maker marked for Clemens Wagner and size 57, cap is in pretty much un-worn, near mint condition.
Super example, with nice saddle shape, standard aluminium insignia with patent leather NCO chin strap, wool cap top is clean and undamaged, the white piping shows very minor nips here and there not at all distracting, in fact the only real visible damage is hidden under the chin strap,black centre band is perfect, as is the cap interior, finished in artificial silk with a supple thin brown leather sweat band, celluloid rhomboid panel is marked with the Aschaffenburg distributors name.
Finished in a low grade rough green wool, cap has seen moderate use but no damage, BeVo skull is hand applied above the two small pebbled flap closure buttons, BeVo eagle is machined applied to side flap,
interior is in cotton twill and shows sweat and wear especially to the fore head which is a little thread bare in places, no markings visible.
Extremely attractive and desirable tunic in superb condition, retaining all original features including all the factory applied buttons including the small cuff ones!
Tunic shows just minimal light wear only, collar sleeves etc. Just the size block marking is visible, machine applied insignia appears to be all originally applied! EM red piped shoulder boards complete the tunic insignia. Certainly one of the nicest SS-M42 tunics I have seen or offered.
