    Odd photo--piping on tunic does not match visor; odd Karneval-style neck medal; extra ribbon bar, etc--may be a case of dress-up:
    Also, note that the man appears to wearing makeup (look at the eye/eyebrow area in particular). In my opinion, a theater costume composed of original items (except for the neck cross).

    Looks like an arm eagle on the side of the cap in the foreground, not the usual triangular eagles of the rest?
    Why are these men wearing collar piping?

    They aren't wearing collar piping, but I suppose you mean collar patch piping.

    There is nothing unusual about it; this is the black-and-aluminum piping worn by privates and NCOs, which was officially abolished in August 1940.

    From the types of field caps, field blouses and shoulder boards, it is clear that this is an early-war photograph. (The EK2 ribbons tell us it can't be pre-war.)

    HPL2008 is right. There is no collar piping, but just the collar-patch piping.

    Thanks, the image was just so blurry that I couldn't see and it looked like officer's white aluminum piping.

    The patches are like this, however worn on the field grey blouse. The image seems to be from 1940 or so, as Wim and Andreas wisely mention.

    Notice the shoulder straps as well as the side caps and so forth.

    I make mistakes so now and then, as we probably all do!
