German WWII RARE Diplomat's complete uniform set. This is a complete set, all items are named to the diplomat and its his Summer version uniform. VERY RARE and I have never seen a complete set for sale. First is the tunic, made from a quality thin Summer wool, its double breasted and has the open lapel cut. The color is an Egg shell White. The wool is very thin and very is a very high quality smooth finish. On the front are the standard Diplomat buttons, all match and all are marked BRUDER SCHNEIDER AG WEIN. The buttons are faced with the German eagle and swastika with leafs at the base. There are loops for two medals on the left breast. This is a Mid-War tunic, and therefore has on the Left sleeve the later style Diplomatic stars for rank. Three Gold Bullion stars with five points each. Inside its lined with a fine White silk like material. Inside the inner pocket is the first name tag. This shows the maker BERKE-CHUCHER-SCHRODER Berlin W. Mohrenstr. 11-12, Named to Dr. Kurt Rieth his tailors number for this tunic only, then the date 1943. The maker is well known for making uniforms for the Diplomatic service and many uniforms in private collections have the same makers tag. The coat is a large size.
Next are the trousers. Made of the exact same fine thin Egg shell White wool. Straight leg style, the front has a double style button clouser. Simple belt loops are all around. On the back is a single rear pocket. Inside it has a sew-in elastic waist band in two short sections. Next is the second name tag, BERKE-CHUCHER-SCHRODER, Berlin W. Mohrenstr 11-12, Herrn Dr. Kurt Reith and a different tailor number 1601/43 then the date 1943.
Last is the visor cap, and its fantastic! Large size cap, size is about a 59, its made from a top quality twill wool. Gold bullion cord pipied with a Black capband. Sewn on the front is a High relief detailed Diplomatic eagle in Gold Bullion, on White then on the capband is a matching Gold bullion Wreath with seperate Silver Bullion cockade. There is a Gold capcord to the cap and well as a Black bill. Inside the cap has lots of features. A fine quality Light Beige leather capband with the makers logo embosed on it, some wear to the makers logo. Maker is WIRKLICH STEIN-u. SCHLAFENDRUCKFREI D.R.P. U. DRGM and the small logo. The underisde of the bill is a Cream color. Off-White silk liner has a complete sweatdiamond inside and then a name tag on paper slipped in the slot, HERRN Dr. RIETH. Under the capband is a folded up paper to reduce the size, I have not opened it up to see what it is.
Next is the complete history of Dr. Rieth.
