|This completely untouched set of field uniforms, came directly from the relatives in Austria. The original owner was reportedly KIA in 1944 and the uniforms sent back to the family. Please contact me for further details.|
The set consists of:
- M36 issued field tunic upgraded to officer and slightly retailored to get a shorter waist section as was fashion at the time. Loops for one badge and signs of another badge and a ribbon bar having been pinned directly to the tunics. All insignia 100% originally applied including the Ostmedal and EK2 ribbons.
|Very nice J2 with the name 'Kurt Müller' lightly scratched on one side of the back of the wreath. On the opposite side is an even lighter scratching which reads 'Besswitz' and some more which I can't read. It might be possible to do some further research on this.|
Badge is in very nice condition with most of the frosting remaining.
Case is a repro and only used as background.
|Full length and excellent condition.|
Very hard to find!
|Here we have a very nice and complete flight jacket.|
All wiring and plugs are intact. Internal tightening band around the waist still in place. All zippers and snaps are the original ones and fully working, and the zippers still have their original leather pullers. Snaps are by 'STOCKO', zippers by 'RAPID'.
Original makers label still there, but hardly readable anymore.
Jacket shows overall use, but remains free of any damage or repairs.
It's quite hard to find a jacket like this, that has been worn, but where everything is still in ord..
|An excellent example of the 3rd model Nitsche & Gunther flight goggles. This is the model that has a hinged nose without being fully foldable.|
Lenses are clear and free of marks. Strap retains some flexibility. Goggles have been used but are complete and in very nice condition.
The display head and the flight helmet are for display only and not part of the offer.
|Mint unissued and very high quality.|
Impossible to upgrade.
|Very elegant looking piped service tunic, from the prestigious Berlin tailor 'Averbeck & Bröskamp'.|
Tunic has a nice bullion eagle, loops for 3 badges and a ribbon for the 'Winterschlacht im Osten 1941-42' medal. The white collar patches show some discoloration along the top edge, where they would rub against the neck. All insignia match the tunic in wear, and definitely look original applied.
Inside there is a slit for the dagger hanger, and a label dated 1938 with a name which I believe is 'Hübner'.
Tunic shows lots of wear and quite a bit o..

|Great looking officer's flight blouse for a Flak Leutnant. These are actually hard to find with Flak insignia, since many where converted into Flight branch by collectors.|
It's a textbook example in both cut, type of cloth and insignia.
The right breast features a stunningly detailed early droop tail bullion eagle. On the left side of the breast we find three sets of loops for badges.
Tunic is very clean and in excellent condition inside and out. No mothing or damage anywhere.
|This sharp looking piece is a text book example of an early Luftwaffe officer's service tunic.|
It's tailored from very fine officer's cloth which retains a vibrant deep blue-gray color. Along with the equally vibrant golden-yellow tabs and boards, it's quite an impressive display piece.
Apart from some wear around the collar, tunic is overall in very good condition, however it has suffered some moth bites, mostly around the shoulders on the back.
On the left breast, there are loops for a clasp, or more likely, a long ribbon bar, as well as two..
|This cap has a 1943 date on the sweatband, and it's a textbook mid-war EREL. Dark brown sweatband, ''ghost'' print under the sweat shield, slightly subdued piping and an eagle with some extra backing cloth around the beak area are all typical features matching the date.|
Despite being in almost mint condition, the cap has a great crushed shape with high swept back peak, since the internal stiffener around the crown has been removed. Looks fantastic on display!
|Here's a great looking tunic with a history!|
It is named to Fritz Lonzius (born 10.08.1911 in Magdeburg), who was a pilot and Group Leader in JG 300 and credited with one arial victory. He is mentioned a few times in the JG 300 Chronicles by Lorant/Goyat. Apparently he became heavily addicted to Pervitin (Methamphetamine) in the last days of the war.
Tunic has loops for a ribbon bar, a flight clasp and 3 awards.
On the lower back and on the back of one sleeve there are some clean cuts
which have been very neatly repaired probably by a tailor..

|These alu J2 badges are really hard to find, and when they do pop up, they
usually have one or more repairs.|
This one has a repaired catch but is otherwise minty and very detailed.
Often the rivets are visible on the front of the wings, but this it not the case here.
The case is just a repro used as backround, and not included.
|This grouping was originally part of a large group of items from Heimsch, sold by Hermann Historica.|
Heimsch served with 10 (F)LG 2 at Fliegerhorst Kiel-Holtenau - a unit that flew DO 18s (flying boats) before the war. He earned among other awards the EK2, EK1 and the transport clasp in gold.
Tunic is a wonderful, high quality tailor made example. It is free of mothing but shows overall service wear and some dirt, especially in the neck area. Most likely, this was his everyday tunic.
The bullion breast eagle has some oxidation, but otherwise ..
|Nicely preserved aluminum buckle marked 'GB' for Gustav Brehmer.|
Light wear and excellent detail.
|Here we have an attractive looking example of the rarely offered two piece mediterranen summer flight suit.|
Both jacket and pants are in good overall condition.
The breast eagle is a nice original EM version, but has been replaced at some point.
Front zipper possibly replaced but IMO a period job. It is an early 'ZIPP' zipper with a larger head mounted on top of the small head, likely because the latter proved too hard to grab with gloves on. It has a small mending at the bottom edge, but still works.
All snaps are by 'PRYM'. One snap i..
|Here we have a classic 'Hartmann' jacket with the large pointed collar, high waistline, zippers on the breast pockets and flaps on the hip pockets.|
This one has been modified with the addition of a knitted waistline band as seen on the summer flight jackets, making it quite unique. Also a large map pocket has been added inside the left breast area.
The nicely worn cupal breast eagle is pinned through three small loops. Most of the silver finish is gone from the back of the eagle.
Jacket has well worn slip on shoulderboards for a Feldwebel.
|Here we have a well used example of the rare late war leather flight jacket.|
This one has been stripped of the wiring, breast eagle and most of the lining. The right breast still shows the outline of the eagle.
The original lining and windstopper in the sleeves is preserved and it retains all the original buttons and plastic RiRi zippers!
The leather shows overall wear but remains in good condition.
This jacket does have some issues, but it is priced accordingly, and despite everything, it still looks great on display!
|Here we have a wonderful, well worn flight blouse for a full Oberst!|
It is made of high quality, very smooth cloth.
The right side of the breast features a bullion officer's eagle showing a little oxidation.
The blouse shows overall wear, inside and outside. The insignia has matching wear, although the collar patches show less wear than the eagle and shoulder boards. This makes sense, since the collar patches were applied upon promotion to Oberst, while the shoulder boards were just upgraded with pips since the rank of Major.
The lower ..
|Excellent Pilot's Badge made by Berg & Nolte Lüdenscheid.|
High quality tombak badge with well preserved blackening on the eagle and silvering on the wreath.

Well worn but undamaged save for a couple of holes in the liner.
This is the rare 'unheated' variant made without any plugs or internal wiring. It is NOT a 'heated' jacket with the wiring removed!
The original white plastic (RiRi)sleeve zippers are fully functional.
The enlisted version breast eagle is machine sewn in place and matches the jacket in wear. There's no signs of a previous eagle.
Nice larger size suitable for display on a mannequin.
|Great looking early quality EREL officer's visor cap, with a wonderful saddle shape!|
Vented cockade and EREL logo on sweat shield and sweat band.
Cap shows overall light wear with some fraying to the lower rear piping and a few spots of surface oxidation on the wreath. No mothing anywhere!

On the reverse of the sweatband, it is stamped with a 1938 date, and the size which is 58½.
|This is the visor cap of Uffz. Heinrich Schnuer of 1/KG 2.|
It has a great looking swept back crusher shape!
Unfortunately it has not been stored too well and since it is made of the thick felt-like material that moths just love, it comes as no surprise that there are numerous small surface bites all over the crown. Luckily they didn't go for the piping and there are no big holes either. It's not that noticable until you pick it up really.
Along with the cap comes a picture of Schnuer as a Gefreiter wearing what looks like this cap, before he g..

Both the paint and eagle decal is in very good condition.
The tricolor shield has been scratched off as per regulations, but it is still clearly visible.
The liner is in very good condition and has not been messed with. It carries a handwritten name.

|Great looking tailor made uniform for the hard to find "Spiess" rank.|
The tunic displays a nice officer's quality drooptail eagle. On the left side of the breast, there are loops for 2 badges. Also above the pocket there's a small ribbon bar. It was there when I got the tunic, and I've left it there. Finally there's an EK2 ribbon through the top button hole.
The Spiess rings are machine sewn to the sleeve, they show the same amount of wear as the rest of the tunic, and are clearly period applied.
Both tunic and pants are made of the same fine ..

Apart from a few loose stitches around the corner with the magazine compartment (as seen in pic 3), there's no real damage and nothing missing. It's just overall worn and dirty.
With some cleaning and maybe some gentle leather treatment, I think this one would look great, and as it is, it would fit right into a frontline display.
