    It looks like someone has been messing around with this photo with a photoshop type program.

    This NCO wears a Waffenrock dress tunic worn for parade and walking out. The collar patches seem normal to me, he wears Non-commisioned Officer grade silver braid around them and on the shoulder boards and light coloured waffenfarbe which could be infantry (white) or signals (yellow) and there are a few other possibilities as well.

    The Iron Cross and medal ribbons are indeed painted on later, but its very crude for Photoshop. I wonder if it is actually a wartime addition, waffenrocks were more commonly worn pre-war and these are wartime decorations, so they were presumably painted in later. Not something I've seen before. Is this picture yours? Is it an original print?

    It may be a period photo which has been retouched. Often done if the person was KIA and the family wished to have an image of him with all his awards.

    Cheers, Ade.
