A Luftwaffe Lieutenant Colonel Tunic
This excellent Luftwaffe Tunic belonged to a lieutenant colonel in the Luftwaffe flying units. It is a very fine four button tunic having a good whipcord material. There are no flaws in the outer jacket whatsoever. This material is in choice condition, showing very little wear. It has the four pockets with flaps and all buttons are the aluminum pebbled type. There is a really beautiful officers droop tail Luftwaffe breast insignia. This breast insignia is the best you will see, having shiny bullion highlights that partially follow the shape of the wings and then follow the birds body and tail feathering as well as its talons. The swastika is also an outstanding bullion example. The collar is piped with aluminum bullion and the collar tabs are beautiful tan color velvet background with a full bullion wreath. The wreath is highlighted with shiny acorns. Inside the wreath are two birds, indicating the lieutenant colonel rank. The shoulder boards are all woven bullion and there is one gold pip on each. These boards are the sewn in type and the pebbled buttons are smaller than the other buttons on the tunic. This tunic has fine French cuffs and the sleeves are lined with a silk having a lined pattern. The inside of the tunic is silk lined and gray material and. The inside belt is all there and there is also a ring for a dagger. With correct belt, overall a complete and excellent example.
