Uniforms and insignia. Mainly collar tabs, armbands, cuff titles, sleeve badges and so on, and soft headgear. Sometimes tunics too, but those take quite a bit of space to store.

I think not too many of them were ever produced since they were abandoned relatively quickly. Maybe remaining stock was simply thrown away afterwards?

Well like you mentioned the collar is a bit larger than usual, although the size of collars does vary in original tunics as they are private purchase items. Also I don't think the front seams are...

Wow, considering that was her first attempt at a WW2 German uniform, it looks very nice! How much did she charge you?

Hello,

I do not think they are. As far as I know, DDR shoulder boards from lieutenant-captain never had woolen bases, they were always made of cotton.

I'm also not liking the overall...

:laugh: Yeah, there are still a number of sellers on Ebay and elsewhere who sell them for as low as 1-2€.

They might be cheap, but they are collectable and part of the story nevertheless.

Like said, it depends what type of boards we're talking about.

The acorns make it look like it's related to forestry (Forstwirtschaft). I've never seen a cord like this before however.

While I do not study helmets, I could throw in a wild guess and say that maybe the liner is not original to the helmet?

That tunic appears to be a forestry tunic that's been dyed black...note the shape of the collar and it's darker color compared to the lapels.

Hello Albert,

This appears to be a first pattern version of this award, later versions omitted the big red star. Pretty sure these were actively awarded starting around 1953-1955, a few years...

Easily one of the best groupings ever. A blood stained uniform tells a story like no other piece of period garment. These truly are the Holy Grails of collecting.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think some badges were permitted to be worn on service tunics, like ribbon bars, sports badges and academy badges etc. but not sure about classification badges.

Fascinating photo indeed. The dark collar tunics were phased out over time, and there's even photos of them being in use during 1980's! I wish they kept them though, I prefer them to the open collar...
