Mint un-issued, rare!
Very late marking RZM 401/43 SS, not a combat belt, finished in a black polished outside and a natural brown polished finish to the inside, metal hook is in steel and painted green, super supple condition leather, small rip to the adjustment leather strip.
SS-SD TABS Tabs are in excellent condition near mint....
Perfect condition, nice patina !
Ultra rare and original!!
Excellent battlefield pick up! This one certainly saw action! Camo colours show clearly, the helmet also has grit added to the paint, both decals remain but partially covered by the camouflaging, the police decal is somewhat damaged, interior condition shows clear evidence of having been left on the battlefield for sometime open to the elements, the stained leather liner is pretty much complete with all tongues present but very dry and turned inward, inside skull shows it has been filled with water for some time, a very atmospheric piece indeed.
GI bring back from an old US collection break up, colours are bright and un-faded, all springs attached and working, unused condition!
Steel clips and foliage loops indicate later construction,
no size marking would fit a 64 helmet size, simply the best condition cover out there!
Superb bright colours make this smock an extremely attractive piece of SS combat clothing, complete with all elastics working and full cuffs no modifications at all, interestingly Blurred edge has been utilised for the neck opening reinforcing, the neck draw string is not its original tie, split repairs have been made to both armpits, and the front skirt, along with some small hole repairs to the skirt, none of which take away from the impressiveness of this rare piece when viewed from the spring side. Featured in the splendid 1998 Japanese publication 'SS Uniformen Der SS 1938-1945.
I have a copy of this book I can also offer with the sale.
