Default A totally untouched used tunic?

I visit this forum quite a bit and don't remembering seeing a fully untouched (used) tunic with rock solid provenance. Anyone mind sharing an example they know of?

There is really a Solid rock provenance:
- a period pic? (Could make a good job)
- a story certified?
- a German vet found?

Quite always is a question of believe also if you have top story and rock provenance.
Mr Skorzeny sold him dkig 3 or 4 times for example.

The untouched tunic from the 2018 SOS show. Was being offered at $18,000.00 because of chain of custody and providence proving it. Inadvertently sold by a table helper for $1800.00. A 23 page thread on WAF regarding the incident.

A painful story to read about. The seller should never have left anyone in charge without clarifying the numbers. And the guy who made off with it absolutely did not sell it in the parking lot at some minor profit. My ass.

Here's one. Given to me many years ago by the only sister of the brother who was killed in Russia. She had two homes, one in the US and one in Germany and was permanently retiring to the US with her husband (a German engineer who worked for GE) and was closing out the (family) home in Germany. She and her husband had been my clients for many years and knew how interested I was in these things. This is the only Heer officer in my collection.
