    Thank you all for the positive comments...they are much appreciated.

    I apologize for my lack of posting additional pics. I will make a concentrated effort to get more detailed pictures of my waffenrock collection posted by this Tuesday.

    I'm hoping the pics will be worth the wait.

    Mark,

    as you know I am a huge fan of your collection of Waffenrocks when you posted them on the WAF. I am absolutely in love with that Recon set and do you still have that killer Jager waffenrock in light green? Make sure you put me down as the next owner of that recon set Matt

    Matt,

    On Tuesday, I will post a few pics of my copper brown piped waffenrock and the matching piped trousers. I don't foresee this ensemble leaving my collection but if it does, I have you as the next owner. I will also post a few pics of my jager waffenrock.

    These are two of the toughest waffenfarbe to find on a heer waffenrock and both landed in my collection within a month. I went years trying to find these rocks without success and then they suddenly arrive. Funny how these treasures seem to show up.

    Mark,

    It seems like that is how it goes. Also put me down for your Jäger one as well. I do love both of those waffenrocks, they are just visually stunning. Matt

    Default General Staff Waffenrock of Friedrich Mil Sixt

    All,

    I appreciate your patience while I'm finally getting around to posting more pictures of my collection.

    Attached is a brief bio of General Lieutenant Friedrich Mil Sixt, and a few pictures of his waffenrock I have in my collection.

    A few years ago I was fortunate to purchase Friedrich Sixt's General Staff Waffenrock which is named to him when he held the rank of Major.

    Even though everything to this ensemble is original from the TR period, only the waffenrock itself belonged to Friedrich Sixt.

    I hope you enjoy this short history lesson of a man by all accounts, was a superb leader, a great tactician, and a soldier's general.

    General.... thank you!

    Below are a few pictures of my Jager NCO Waffenrock with rare light/grass green waffenfarbe.

    This tunic is as mint as they come but unfortunately someone removed the owner's label from the interior pocket. It would have been extra special if the rock still had the owner's name and unit in it.

    Here are a few pictures of my NCO Motorized Reconnaissance Waffenrock with trousers piped in one of the rarest waffenfarbe, copper brown.

    The copper brown color was authorized only for Reconnaissance Battalions in July 1939. At the same time the army was undergoing its rapid expansion in preparation for war. With the reorganization of the cavalry and Panzer units in July 1938, most army reconnaissance units were already authorized to wear the golden yellow waffenfarbe. The brown waffenfarbe was then restricted to Motor Cycle Battalions and with the outbreak of war on 1 September 1939, you can see why this waffenrock with its copper brown piping is so rare. What is probably more rare than the tunic itself, is the copper brown piped stone gray trousers that accompanied this ensemble when I purchased it.

    It is interesting to note, the interior lining of both sleeves has a stamp which reads, 'Stadttheater Giessen.' It would appear that for many years this rare tunic and trousers was the property of the Theater Company in Giessen, Germany before it reached the open market.

    Like the Jager Waffenrock, this tunic and trousers are absolutely mint. All I need now is a minty visor to go with it.
