Default Rarest Heer Tunics

Which are the rarest Heer tunics that you like to collect? Not just the you don't ever see this, but maybe just something you like and don't see too often or in the condition you like. And I could not fit everything in the poll - so feel free to add!

I voted for Smoke, but I'll be damned if I have been able to find a Signals piped tunic or officer's Waffenrock in three years of looking!

I think real PanzerPioneer are very rare and almost imposible to find. The black-white piped tunics.

OKH and OKW enlisted tunics are not terribly common. At the last Show of Shows, Helmut Weitze had a waffenrock for a captain who was a band master in a panzergrenadier unit. THAT was a stunning uniform and he priced it higher than a Luftwaffe General der Flieger uniform he was also selling. I asked Helmut why the PzGren Hauptmann cost more than the G.d.Flieger and he said he'd had several G.d.Fliger tunics but this was the first PzGren bandmaster he'd ever had.

Cheers, Bill Huber

Chris,
I think they are so rare they would skew any poll. But they are beautiful!

Hi All,

And for me...the best and rare tunic is the Propaganda Kompanie (Medium Gray farben).

Best regards,

Ricardo.

Smoke rarest for sure but I can't find a GD Signals Panzerwrap in 5 years of searching now.

I would have to agree that Violet is the rarest of all waffenfarbe.

If you think waffenfarbe is difficult to find, try finding a Generaloberst rank in ANY service!

I don’t know if the has been mentioned but I would say Chaplain’s. I have been looking for a nice one forever and a day. Although this is probably not the rarest but I like signals. They are not that common and just like transport I feel under appreciated and under valued.
