German WWII Army (HEER) officers tunic. A really fantastic tailor made summer weight tunic. Tunic is made from a Mottled green light weight cotton material, with a custom off-red liner. Darkgreen deep pointed collar and double hooks for the collar to stand up correctly. Collar tabs are Black based for Pioneer troops, silver bullion wire weave and very nice! The shoulderboards are sew-in and are also Black based for pioneer troops, dull silver cord is losing some if its bullion and both have two gold pips each for the rank of Captain. Really top quality silver bullion wire breast eagle. On the sleeve is a BeVo Jager patch.
Tunic has loops for two medals and a small ribbon bar. All buttons match and are hollow style, painted gray/green. Tunic has officers cuffs on the sleeves, and is a short tailor cut at the waist. On the back are two small hooks for the belt to be supported. I have never seen such a custom made summer weight tunic before, the attention to the material, and really more to the liner, you can see some small belt straps inside the front to keep the tunic tight at the waist, nothing is raw or open inside, all sewn down or closed, this was not a cheap tunic to make at the time! All insignia is tight to the material and I see nothing to say its not original to the tunic, The collar tabs underneath shown something, but its hard to say as the collar internals are stiffened and padded inside at the tabs, tabs could be replaced, but if so, there wartime done. This is a fantastic tunic and is an officer from a Pioneer regt. in a Jager division.

Luftwaffe Generals Trousers. These are extremely rare trousers for a Luftwaffe General. Standard Generals trousers, but these are for "Field Use" as the Normal Generals trousers had the double wide White stripes, it was felt these would stand out too much in the field, so they did away with the double stripes and left the single thin center white strip. Pictures show that many Generals still wore the Double Striped ones as well, but in Combat zone photos you see these trousers worn. They are in excellent condition and are straight leg style cut. An order dated November 2 1943 Permitted the wear of the trousers without the wide strips, but kept the center thin white strip. These are not named. Very Rare!
This is a one-of-a-kind grouping. This massive set belonged to Wessl Baron Freytag von Loringhoven and his brother Klaus. The set is very large and all items came directly from the family. This set was stuffed into to large suitcases after the war! Baron Klaus Freytag von Loringhoven and his brother wore these uniforms, several tunics, a greatcoat and trousers, plus the visor caps. But let me give a brief backround of the brothers.
One of the brothers who is also famous, Bernd Loringhoven has be featured on many Post-war shows about WWII and the Plot, and rose to the rank of General in the West german Army. His cousin, Wessel Freytag von Loringhoven, provided the detonator charge and explosives for the 20 July assassination attempt against Adolf Hitler. Wessel Freiherr Freytag von Loringhoven (10 November 1899, Groß-Born, Courland Governorate – 26 July 1944, Mauerwald, East Prussia), was a colonel in the High Command of the German Armed Forces (Oberkommando der Wehrmacht, or OKW) and a member of the German Resistance against German dictator Adolf Hitler (Widerstand). Loringhoven was a friend of Claus Graf Schenk von Stauffenberg, who was the leader of the 20 July Plot to assassinate Hitler in 1944. Loringhoven provided the detonator charge and explosives for the assassination attempt against Hitler on 20 July 1944. He was able to obtain unrecognized English explosives from German intelligence (Abwehr) sources. However, Ernst Kaltenbrunner, the Chief of the Reich Security Main Office (Reichssicherheitshauptamt, or RSHA), discovered the actions of Loringhoven. On 26 July 1944, immediately before he was to be arrested by the Gestapo and fully aware of the interrogation techniques utilized by them, Loringhoven committed suicide at Mauerwald in East Prussia. The rank listing published in 1939 for Wessel shows 1st Army Corp, 1st Cav. Brigade, Aufklaerungs Abteilung 1, 3rd, Krad. Co. They knew each other well but Bernd was not involved directly in the plot; after it failed Bernd managed to escape arrest, due to the support of Guderian. The Waffen rock and Cav piped visor cap belonged to Wessel. One of the brothers, Klaus is the Artillery piped items. Klaus had some duties with or near Hitler as several of the photos show him in photos with Hitler, same with his brother Wessel. Klaus was an OberLeut. in 1941-42 and wore the two Artillery tunics and crusher. There's a ton of research that can be done on this set, and I know there's much more I do not know about them.
The set is big, and has many paper items as well. The tunics, and there are three, were worn by Wessel and Klaus, the Artillery piped, two early tunics, Captains rank, and a greatcoat, ALL are named! and we worn by Klaus. There's also a fantastic crusher visor with the direct woven wreath and early eagle, the wreath is ultra-rare as its woven into the capband! There's also a pair of officers Stone-gray trousers also named. The other tunic is a Parade tunic to Wessel, and is Cavalry piped, with ADJ cords, the tunic is mint and has the number 1 and Recon emblem on it. The cufftitle is lightly hand tacked onto the tunic and is an Ultrarare FHQ cufftitle in Bullion, and I have two of these! One loose. These cufftitles are rare and expensive buy themselves. There's his Parade brocade belt and buckle in the original box, one small end of the box is loose but inclued. Several pairs of boots are included as well, BUT the set thats mint with the wooden trees does not belong to this group, as well as the paper covered scabbard, I am sorry, they were put into the photo by accident. There is a well worn Cavalry piped crusher visor as well that was Wessels, This is an ErEL makred cap. Both crushers are well worn. But the last visor is a MINT and I cannot say this enough, a MINT Artillery piped visor! I have never seen one this nice and its unissued!
There's an Unnisued scabbard, that's not part of sorry set, sorry. Some sword and dagger inner belts and a sword brown felt cover bag. Next are two mapcases, with maps in them, I have not removed them to see what they are, but assumning Russia. There are many photos, and the pics I have here will show them in detail. Many are personal of his wife and family, baby etc. but the majority are of Service in the Army, and many originals with Hitler, Goering and others. One shows him getting an award? with Hitler and another shows him shaking hands with hitler. There are many. Some seem to focus around Hitlers Train with Keitel, Goering, and many others. Some are portraits as well. Next are several papers, a few are Hitler Youth papers, membership cards and ID booklets. Klaus was the younger brother and was in the HJ, then the Artillery. Many personal letters written to and from klaus in Russia in 1941. Last are several books, many popular titles, including Rommels books all are named to him inside the cover of each book. Hitlers Mein Kampf and Rosenberg's book as well. There are some othe papers as well, some letters, and city information books?
This is a fantastic set, and there is not another like it! This family is well documented on the internet and much can be learned with these brothers. The uniforms all show wear and use but normal, only the crushers show more wear. All uniforms are named. This set is history.
Below are the only remaining items left for sale from the group, all of the other items are now gone.
1: FHQ Officers early version wire cufftitle. VERY RARE PRICE: $3700
2: Calvary crusher listed in the caps section.
3: All of the photos, documents, books and paper items are listed in the SPECIALITY EXOTIC section for sale.
Keep in mind, these are rare items, and named to this officer and his history, and his direct involvement with Stauffenburg and family history in the July 20th plot, its not just "named" items.
I will start with a brief history for GeneralOberst Alfred Jodl. Born 10 May 1890 – Died 16 October 1946, Primarily a staff officer during and after World War I, Jodl served as head of the department of national defense in the war ministry from 1935. A competent staff officer and Hitlers faithful servant to the end, he was named chief of operations of the Oberkommando der Wehrmacht (OKW; Armed Forces High Command) on August 23, 1939, just before the invasion of Poland. With Wilhelm Keitel , OKW chief of staff, he became a key figure in Hitler’s central military command and was involved in implementing all of Germany’s campaigns except the beginning of the Russia invasion in the second half of 1941. On May 7, 1945, he signed the capitulation of the German armed forces to the western Allies at Reims, France. As chief of operations staff, he had signed many orders for the shooting of hostages and for other acts contrary to international law. He was executed after trial and conviction for war crimes by the International Military Tribunal at Nurmberg.
This tunic was worn by GeneralOberst Alfred Jodl. It originally came from his wife, Luise Jodl in 1990 and was sold at Auction (see photo of papers). This was one of two tunics worn by Jodl and sold at auction. This tunic is believed to have been worn after 1944 per the date in the tag until the wars end. After the surrender, he wore it for sometime after that, as it has loops under the collar for the Knights cross, Jodl was Awarded the Knight's Cross at wars end in 1945, and there are photos of him in captivity wearing the Knights cross. This tunic is most likely one of a few he wore after May 1945. The tunic itself is excellent, no damage and shows light wear. It has the Normal Generals Gold wire bullion collar tabs, machine sewn on with gold and silver twist cord GeneralOberst shoulderboards also sewn in. Three silver wash pips to each. The breast eagle is a fine gilt wire eagle, high relief weave and hand sewn on. Gold pebbled buttons all matching to the tunic "Extra Fein" stamped to them.
The tunic features a long set of loops for the ribbon bar. There is a pair of holes right above the pocket flap for the Golden Party badge, no loops. The badge in the photos are for viewing only and is not his badge. Next are several loops for his medals all in a straight line as you see in many wartime photos of him wearing his various tunics. The wool is a fine quality but light weight twill, with a green liner. Its has a high stand up collar with three pins for the collar liner. The tunic is Red piped down each from seam the full length. The coat has the slot of the dagger hanger to go through but no hanger. This is seen as not used more towards the end of the war as some officers wore inner dagger belts. Inside the pocket is a fantastic name tag. Its to a berlin maker, and has the name written in ink and is dated 1944. A very unique feature to the name tag is the number "3" in red this is a tailor stamp and is seen in very high ranking officials tunic's made at the time.
The last item to be included with the tunic are three papers. All three are photo copies, why? when the group was sent to auction only one set, the originals went with the other tunic. This tunic and some other items received copies of the paperwork. The papers discuss the items being given to the Auction house to be sold. One paper is a letter to Frau Kesselring talking about their husbands. The last is a personal letter dated 1992 written by Luise Jodl, I have not translated it.
This tunic is a one of a kind. But as with hos several tunics, there many be one or more of his tunics in private collections around the World. Each tunic is different as far as I know. This tunic also comes from the private collection that currently has GFM Keitel's parade tunic in it, its currently in our Web Site Museum.
This is a very important piece from history and is unique in many ways its History, pure and simple. Serious inquirys only please.
