Description

1937 Issue Luftwaffe 4 pocket tunic in excellent condition showing only minor signs of use. High quality enlisted wool with early, 'down-tailed' embroidered breast eagle. Rank is for Flight Unteroffizier with early twist yellow piping and silver/aluminum NCO Tresse around the collar. The shooting lanyard was originally an Army example grade 12 with aluminum cording, gold slides, and 3 gold acorns. Someone has replaced the gilt metal Army device with a Luftwaffe device, which is incorrect. The lanyard would be better served by removing the incorrect Luftwaffe badge and restoring the lanyard with the appropriate Army gilt badge.  The tunic is fully lined with cotton fabric and is issue dated 1937 for the Airbase Schönwalde, Technical Company. Very fine early example tunic with a bonus Army highest level shooting lanyard which would be relatively easy to restore.
