    Default Generals Tunic, Visor and Mantel!

    I just got to visit my Great Uncle today to take some photos for him.The first thing he pulled out was this Heer Generals Tunic,Visor and Mantel ALL in GREAT condition. He s looking to sell the group. One shoulder board is off the tunic but is still in the pocket along with his old shoulder boards in silver, some button from previous uniform and the eagle that goes to the visor. This group is in fantastic condition with little or none mothing to all parts.The wound badge is black and from WWI.theres one ribbon missing from the bar. Can you I.D. the other medals? The visor has a little damage to the gold chin cord but can be fixed. The cap is unmarked by maker.Prob a private purchase. The red is vibrant as the day made. The history is the General took the group to the dry cleaners and never came back to pick it up. Possibly captured,killed or some other reason. My Great Uncle got it from the drycleaner in Germany long ago.Please tell me what you guys think about it and possibly the value of it so I can tell him what it's worth.Thanks There more pics of the tunic but I need to find 'em.

    The schirmutze is not that of a general officer as it would have a gold wreath and gold piping. The red backed eagle is something I have never seen before. It certainly would not have been mounted on a visor cap. Depending on when the cap was made, the eagle could be either silver or gold.
    Is either the tunic or the mantel named?

    Unfortunately none are named..I looked through all the pockets too, but only found the boards and adler and buttons...the adler may not even be for the cap, as the thread on the cap is green .I dont know though. Im not even sure if this cap came with the uniform originally,maybe added later by my Uncle.He's kinda old so I dont know if he remembers. Possibly this cap was converted by someone at some point?
