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, Its very hard to tell on this one, but if so, there wartime done. This is a fantastic tunic and is an officer from a Pioneer regt. in a Jager division.
