My small collection.
Here are 2 tunics , they both are restored jobs i've done, and the incomplete one i'm working on right now.
The completed one was in horribly stained, seams were out about 60 %, belt hooks missing - replaced those, and repaired all seams, replaced all buttons, and i sewn in the collar cord.
I own more SS photographs then that, This is just some of my favorites.
I picked up that Dachau camp note years ago, and i made the frame, and the sheet it sits in, I think it looks pretty good.
I'm working out a deal right now for an Allgemeine SS tunic.
Majority of those items on the shelves were awarded to me, or i earned them.
I know its a very tiny collection compared to the other members in here, but i'm working on it.
I keep the limited prints rolled up, and in plastic tubes.
Another tunic to add to my collection.
Update on the stripped Brownshirt i have been working on.
Sewn in single shoulder board.
All i need now, is a nice armband for it.
Nice work Brian. I also spy some ribbon bar and award loops that would look nice filled up. Just to help spend some more money for you
Yes, Im trying to find a small ribbon bar, and a SA sports badge, as I'm sure that's what was there at one time, as that seems like the norm.
I did all of the sewing by hand, no machine sewing at all.
What do you think of that shoulder board ?
SA and political stuff in general is not what I collect. The red underlay does look very wide to me though.
Yes, nice work on the sewing. I can do a little sewing myself but my Mum is great with a needle and thread.
Ive been looking everywhere for the last 6- 8 months for that certain type of shoulder board, could not find it, so i made it myself.
Please keep in mind, That brownshirt is for my private collection, never for sale, at least not that one.
On all collar tabs i sew on, i use a double needle type stitching, and i interlock the thread underneath to make sure the collar tab is secure.
And i do use original WW 2 German era thread .
