A Reichsarbeitsdienst Obertruppführer Officer's Tunic

An extremely high quality officer's tunic fabricated from a fine twill brown wool, with a chocolate brown wool collar, the shoulders adorned with shoulder straps that are sewn in place, the uppers of the straps in fine twill wool with two rows of fine silvered aluminum wire flanking a thin row of black embroidery along the edge and trimmed in black piping, along with a silvered pip at the shoulder end, indicative of the rank of Obertruppführer and sewn in place to the body of tunic at the shoulder end. The opposite end of each strap has uppers with magnetic silvered buttons with pebbled uppers sewn in place, the buttons maker marked "F. & CO", size marked "18 m/m" and marked with an interlocking initials insignia on their reverses, with the underside of each strap in brown wool with a reinforced button hole. Each of the brown chocolate collars have light brown and black embroidered collar tabs sewn in place. The upper left sleeve has a red, white and black embroidered patch sewn in place, illustrating the RAD downward-pointing shovel insignia and marked with the 6th Section of 356 RAD Department identification, with a red wool NSDAP party armband below, the armband with a white cotton disk bearing a black embroidered swastika in its centre. The front has four pockets sewn in place to the body of the tunic, smaller ones on each breast and larger ones on either side below at the waist, both breast pockets with a decorative pleat, all four pockets with a fold over flap and reinforced button hole for the silvered aluminum buttons, each button with pebbled uppers, both of which are maker marked "F. & CO" and marked "38" (1938) on their reverses. The left breast pocket has two vertically-aligned horizontal loops in green threading for placement of an award, that has since been lost to time. Just above the left waist pocket, there is a silvered metal hook sewn in place, the anchor of the hook sewn in place between the wool exterior and the interior lining. The front has a vertical row of four silvered aluminum buttons on the right side, the same type as those used on the pockets, facing an equal number of reinforced button holes on the left side, the top button hole with a War Merit Cross ribbon fed through it, the other end of the ribbon wrapped around the opening of the tunic, with both ends of the ribbon stitched in place on the inside. The sleeves have French cuffs, each of which are held in place via stitching in two locations.

There is a slot behind the left waist pocket, the mouth of which is lined in brown wool.

The inside is lined in greenish-brown rayon, with black cotton patches sewn in place in the armpits, each of the sleeves lined in white cotton. Exiting the lining on either side just below each armpit is a greenish-brown rayon belt, the left end with a silvered metal clip, the right end with a slotted receiver and when joined together, ensures a snug fit at the waist. There is a brown cotton strap sewn in place at the collar for hanging the jacket on a hook. The tunic measures 440 mm across the shoulders x 680 mm in length, with one small hole near the right breast pocket, the armband exhibiting mothing and light soiling, the rayon lining also light soiling, the black cotton patch in the left armpit with separation present in the stitching, the slotted metal receiver of the belt displaying surface rust. Near extremely fine.
