Here is another exceptionally rare NCO Waffenrock for the Panzer Lehr Division with Spanien Cuff Title.
This waffenrock with the Spanien CT is often faked due to the high cost of an original. If you study how this CT is stitched to the sleeve, and how time has melded the CT to the wool fabric, you will easily spot the fakes. The melding of CT to the wool sleeve cannot be replicated except with the passage of many decades.
Thank you again for obliging my request for more images. I am torn between which waffenrock is my favorite; there is just some many excellent examples. General Lieutenant Friedrich Mil Sixt waffenrock is quite special, but then again, so are the last two you posted and many others.
Stunning tunics! Matt
Wow MLH13 thatīs a collectors paradise!!
Welcome to the forum. What a fine collection you have. WOW.
I would be ecstatic to have just one of those rocks. You have so many beautiful sets. And a General's set on top of all it! You have done very well in 20 years of collecting. I sure wish these uniforms were $3-500 today. I would have just as many if they were. Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing them with us.

Thank you all for the compliments. I appreciate them very much.
This waffenrock is new to my collection and although it's a common piece, it is very close to mint. I know the pictures don't do the piece justice, but in-hand it is a spectacular tunic.
Unfortunately there is no tailor or owner's label inside, but it is a very handsome piece I had to add to my collection. In addition, there is an important historical significance as the 29th Artillery Regiment was destroyed at Stalingrad.

What a stunning eagle on it! Great tunic regardless of it just being another Artillery one, these Stalingrad units are very desirable either which way. Matt
