Heer Schützenschnur, Klasse 1 and display?

Article about: Picked up this fine chord the other day. I have always liked these marksmanship lanyards ever since getting into collecting Heer militaria. I would like to find a nice on with acorns someday

    Sorry, but if this is the exaxt Waffenrock you intend to buy, the Schützenschnur has no business being there, as this is an officer's tunic, whereas the marksmanship lanyards were only worn by enlisted ranks.

    [Specifially, this is the special-pattern Waffenrock for the Großdeutschland regiment. This item of dress was officially instituted in 1939, but never actually issued due to the outbreak of the war.*) It should also have a Großdeutschland cuff title on the right sleeve.]

    *) Bit of trivia for movie buffs: Daniel Brühl in his role as Zoller in Inglourious Basterds got to wear it, though.
    This is just a stock image but I will be sure to ask for details when ordering. Thank you for your input
