Cameras, lenses, light and shadow can play funny tricks.

IMO this is a 100% pieces full of history and accompanied by beautiful provenance. Sets like this are hard to come by.

The price is not really that high when you consider that humped up pieces cost about 50%, but are nowhere historically satisfying as this group.

Many collectors prefer to spend let's say USD 15,000 on a humpted up, fancy looking tunic with "Das Reich" ct and many award loops. But at best these are representations of what the real thing would have looked like during the TR period.

This here is a real/true tunic which saw service with "Das Reich" and its neat Flak Abteilung. One award loop and no CT is not sexy, but real and representative for many soldiers serving around 1942/43.

I have no cards in this offer/sale, but I have a weak spot for uniforms with provenance (especially LAH) and felt to speak out for the genuine historical pieces. Not the make-believe stuff.

Cheers,
Markus

Those tunic details are exactly what I meant in post #53. I'm glad there is a concurrence on those aspects. Again, very nice Jack

Perhaps with the buttons, not for Robert - but that's been my experience as well.

It looks you dont understand.
I still think the buttons are silver on the photo, what is the
problem you have when someone gives a honest view?
And in case they where changed it doesnt make a tunic a fake I hope you understand this as well clear.

OK - perhaps what you intend to say is being lost in translation?

Do you think this tunic is the same one as shown in the photograph - or not?

Gentlemen, gentlemen....please.

Cautiosness with untouched garments especilally SS is always in order, but when things eventually add up such as in this grouping, just enjoy it.
A asking price like for this grouping - if justified, I rather leave to others - will of course only address a very small group of collectors, for more than one reason.
With respect, but I find your remark therefore given with not much thought on.

Yes, with another price tag on it; I would buy it in a heart beat.

what is the history of this this group, where it was found?
I agree the tunic is the same (basic tunic).
