Well done! But you need to hang some sharp pointy things on those tunics..
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
Each piece holds such interesting details and little obscure markings that take a whole lot of time and group effort to figure out. How bizarre, that some, including myself, delve this deeply into understanding a manufacturing process of a vanquished enemy that, in the grand scheme of things, matters very little. For me, these are the riddles, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma that FB reminds of us in many of his posts and what I spend a silly amount of time pursuing. I can not say why, however, I like the challenge in figuring out in what manner these little details associated with these items played a role. Picayune details of a distant time.

Well done CMH. Nice to see, thanks for posting.
Hi DrCMH, what a lovely collection you have there, congratulations.
The tunic 2nd from the left, is it a Stammabteilung tunic? I have only seen these cuff titles with the word WELT on them.
A very admirable collection you've built there, CMH.
Have a look at this thread for more Stammabteilung-related material (including DrCMH's tunic, examples for insignia and excerpts of a period price list showing available Stammabteilung cuff titles):
