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.

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.

German SS or NSKK Black wool trousers. These are excellent and show no use. These are more towards SS, the partial lining material matches several SS trousers I have. Black wool, these are flared at the calfs, and at the bottom they button up. Has the small watch pokcet on front and the side adjustment buckles as well. The wool is a finer twill and is more likely Officers or NCO use. No markings or tags, these appear tailor made. Very nice and perfect for and SS officers Black tunic. The waist size is smaller at 36-38US. No mothing or damage.
German WWII FirePolice tunic. This ones really rare! This is a wartime FirePolice NCO's tunic and is in unissued condition. Wool tunic is of the Police Blue/Green wool, and is in a cut of the Model 43 tunic. It has machine sewn collar tabs, mouse gray BeVo tabs with the Carmine insets for FirePolice. On the shoulders are slipon boards, also Carmine based with Brown and Silver bullion cord for NCO ranks, this color Brown was for 43-ON tunics as 42-Back were black and silver cords. Tunic has the later issue sleeve eagle, on a gray/green felt and the Carmine eagle. Tunic appears to be never worn. Partial rayon liner in a pale Green, has the straps the the equipment belt loops and the liner is well marked. Dated 1943 with the size stamps. No mothing, no damage, its close to unissued!

German WWII Or Pre-War Black SS Trousers. Nice pair of Black wool riding breeches, These are in great shape and show little use or wear. Typical flared trousers, they have both calfs with tie strings. All buttons match and none appear replaced. Side pocket front flaps and a watch pocket. On the sides are adjustment straps with Blue steel buckles. Inside is a partial liner, in an off-White maybe a very light Gray material. There is the RZM tag sewn in but its washed out. Its almost impossible to read, but in the lower right corner you can see some printing lines and the number. The only issue I can see is at the crouch, bottom is one or too tiny holes, but small and hard to see, no other damage or mothing. This style of trousers were worn by the SS and also the NSKK, but the RZM tag style leads me towards SS use.
