    Nice period "original" portrait taken at a studio in Windhorn (Niedersachsen) Germany. He wears the second pattern Panzer wrap, replaced by the third in 42, which would not (in most cases) have had collar piping. If I remember correctly, the collar piping was done away with in 1942.

    Very cool that he has sewn the skulls. Excellent. Love uniform alteration photos the most

    Nice picture and thanks for sharing. Love the old pictures for sure. He sure has a good complexion. Must have been one of the candidates or poster boys for the master race.
