A German State (Reich) Forestry Service Forstaufseher (Supervisor)

Third Reich Period: The tunic is fabricated from a fine grayish-green wool, the shoulders adorned with Revierförster (Regional Forester) shoulder straps incorporating four rows of hunter green embroidery, wrapped in a u-shape, in a chevron formation, a silvered brass acorn on the upper, with a loop creating a button hole for uniform attachment at the neck end and completed with a green-finished plastic button, the straps with a sea green wool underside. The collar is fabricated from hunter green wool, the edge trimmed in an angled rolled silvered aluminum wire, each of the collars adorned with Forstaufseher collar tabs consisting of two individual oak leaves with one acorn each, on a hunter green wool upper, the green representative of the State (Reich) Forestry Service. There are four pockets on the front, one on each breast and larger ones at the waist on both sides, the breast pockets designed with a decorative pleat, all four pockets having fold over flaps with reinforced button holes and are completed with green-finished plastic buttons sewn in place. The front has a vertical row of four green-finished plastic buttons, unmarked, sewn in place on the right side, facing an equal number of reinforced button holes on the left side. The sleeves have French cuffs, each held in place via stitching in two locations. The rear of the tunic is single-vented, with two green-finished plastic buttons above the venting. The inside of the tunic is lined in a moss green rayon, while the sleeves are lined in white rayon in a stripped pattern. In addition, there is a pocket sewn in place on the left breast and a brown rayon strap sewn in place in the collar for hanging the tunic on a hook, the tunic without a manufacturer's label. The tunic measures 440 mm across the shoulders and 640 mm in length overall, exhibiting scattered silvering wear on the acorns on both shoulder boards, the angled rolled silvered aluminum wire coming away from the body of the left collar tab at its lower right corner, the tunic free of mothing and interruptions in the fabrics, displaying a nice texture in the wool and quality workmanship, along with intact stitching and is very clean. Near extremely fine. (C:166)
