Shirt is made from a heavy, quality cotton tan material. The collar is piped in Black and White twist cord piping, which is the same used to the top the shoulderboard. The shoulderboard is based on Medium Green material with a gold sewn button to the top. Collar tabs are handsewn on as they should be, and are same Medium Green based with White chainstiching for the 1/84 Sturm. Buttons are a smooth Gold finish and are held on with removeable brass rings. This shirt has the original SA RZM tag sewn inside, but it is washed out from cleaning, you can still see some details. Very unique to this Brownshirt is that is has the Year stripes to each sleeve, meaning true "old fighter" from the early years! Really nice and a quality Pre-war made Brownshirt!

The shirt is excellent and shows little if any use. Has Smooth silver buttons held on by metal rings, the rest are sewn on. The collar is piped in Red and white twist piping, and that matches the collar tabs. The collar tabs are Red based for staff, and have rank only. This is a rare Brownshirt as its not only for a staff member, but an officer as well. Rank is Untersturmfuhrer, and has a silver top cord on Red base shoulderboard as well. Does not have an armband, as these just slip on the sleeve. Partial off white liner, no tags insife, belt ramps are the pebbled style in brass and unmarked.

Another rare SA uniform set, SA Bergrock (mountain) uniform set. Matching tunic and trousers, and both are UNISSUED. Never worn and never had insignia on them. For SA troops. The Bergrock set, or Mountain uniform set starts with the tunic. Short cut wool tunic has only the upper pockets, open neck style the arms or sleeves have inside cotton liners that are elastic around the wrists, only on the Bergrock tunics. Tunic has fantastic RZM tag inside, stamped BERGROCK. The tunic is unissued and has no mothing or damage. The trousers are a mountain troop style, Side pockets with flaps, ahd the legs tapper at the bottom and have draw strings. They also have the mint RZM tag inside. Just a note, this set is unissued, and all sets that have been for sale over the years were a wharehouse find, all unissued, no insignia, if you see a mint set with tabs and boards, most likely its done postwar. The only tunics I have seen that would be considered original with insignia were well worn. The Bergrock set is a rare set to find anymore.
Rare of the Rare SA Officers tunic and trousers. This an extemely rare find, and what makes it really rare is the fact that its a matching set! Summer weight cotton twill tunic and trousers, tunic is brown twill, and features Rear Belt buttons and belt ramps. Silver pebbled buttons on it are solid back and RZM marked! Collar is open neck style, and has sewn on tabs Red based, first is the "Mrh" collar tab for Staff, the other side is Officer rank for Untersturmfuhrer, both silver wire piped. Next is the ORIGINAL to this tunic Party armband hand sewn on the sleeve. Has loops for one medal which is included. Tunic is gold fine cotton lined and has the remains of the tailors tag in the neck. Not named. Has shoulderboards, sewn in and are also Staff red based and silver cord tops. Next are the matching trousers, made of the exact same cotton material and features the riding style cut, and button up and the calfs. Something different to both items, are hand sewn white tags small in size and both have numbers on them, maybe cleaning tags? or Tailor tags?. Both tunic and trousers show use, this was a worn set AND is an UNTOUCHED set, all insignia is original to this tunic! Therer are several small "picks" to the material on both, some little holes here and there I do not know if its from wear of storage. This set have been there, is Staff ranked and is Summer weight to boot! You will not find a set like this anywhere. Rare SA!
Here's something you don't see, a removed SA Greatcoat collar. Taken off a coat, its complete, full length used, shows wear but would be good for a repair to another coat. SA brown top, plus you can see where the collar tabs were.
