Description

Amazing looking German fliegerbluse, probably made around 1940-41. Great to see the early yellow tresse is still attached to the collar. This fliegerbluse started as a enlisted men jacket and got promoted to Unteroffizier. There are clear traces of Wings on the collar tabs from the rank of Obergefreiter that got removed when he was promoted to Unteroffizier. Also some traces of a chevron on the sleeve are visible. The tunic has it’s Original factory applied breast eagle in the typical zig-zag stitching. The collar tabs also never left the jacket since the war. On the left chest a segelflieger C grade badge is sewn directly on the jacket, showing nice ageing and patina. There are also holes on top for a fighter clasp and one hole for a screw back badge. An iron cross 2nd class ribbon is attached in the middle of the chest but has partly come loose. The tunichas some small moth damages but nothing major, please see pictures. Inside the tunic is lined with blue/grey coloured silk. On the chest pocket the maker mark is present together with the size markings (chest 95cm). Great to find an untouched fliegerbluse like this, would be nice to see it all badged up for display!
