An SA Sturmbann-Hessen Standarte 81 Sturmführer Tunic

(Troop Leader); This is a very well preserved uniform tunic belonging to the Sturmführer (Troop Leader) of a SA Sturmbann Hessen of Standarte 81. It is constructed of very fine quality, thick, light brown gabardine cotton-wool blended fabric, featuring a standard notched collar with an original set of collar tabs. The tabs are constructed of navy blue wool, the right tab featuring contrasting white stitching with the numerals “12/81”on the obverse using a narrow crochet pattern, with the left tab featuring two leftward diagonally oriented silvered metal (magnetic) rank pips, also on navy blue wool. Affixed to the shoulders are sew-on type shoulder straps, in the form of two russian-braided, U-shaped, dark brown, twisted cords with silver aluminum bullion arrow-shaped breaks every 4 mm, affixed onto a cream-coloured underside. Each board features a RZM label on its underside that is stamped “28” and numbered “No. 462856”. The tunic features four exterior pockets in total, two at breast height (one per side), and two at waist height (one per side). The pockets at breast height measure approximately 128 mm x 157 mm, and are secured shut via a flap that extends over the opening, held in place via one pebbled silvered metal button, marked “RZM M5/117” for “Walter Heinrich Schmidt, Lüdenscheid” on the reverse of each. The pockets at waist height measure approximately 185 mm x 207 mm, and are equally secured shut by a flap and a pebbled silvered metal button, marked “RZM M5/117” for “Walter Heinrich Schmidt, Lüdenscheid” on the reverse of each. Above each waist-height pocket is also a metal belt keeper loop marked “RZM M5/75” for “Dr. Franke & Co., Lüdenscheid”. The left sleeve is ordained by a standard NSDAP member’s armband, constructed of red cotton, with a white cotton roundel featuring a black swastika with crisp sewn-down 90 degree folds. The armband is secured to the sleeve via machine stitching on the upper side of the band. Each sleeve cuff is folded backward 15 cm and secured to the tunic via two small stitches, with each cuff featuring a 4mm wide silver aluminum bullion tresse for rank designation On the interior, the tunic is lined with a dark tan satin fabric, and features an interior breast pocket on the right side. Both arms are lined with off-white satin, featuring a three-striped design. Each armpit features a sweat-absorption pad, with some of the original filling still contained within it. The reverse of the tunic features a single flap ordained by two pebbled silvered metal buttons on either side, while the obverse features four pebbled silvered metal buttons on the right side of the opening, with reinforced buttonholes on the opposing side. Overall this tunic measures 42 cm across the shoulders, with a sleeve length of 60.5 cm, and is overall 69 cm long. This tunic is very well preserved, but depicts some light, although obvious signs of wear. Mainly, sweat-absorption pads are discoloured from sweat/wear, and the sew-on style shoulder boards have become loose and partially separated from the uniform. Light to moderate signs of mothing are also evident in scattered places on the uniform. Overall, this uniform is in overall near extremely fine condition. (C: 160)
