    Hi Chris, The rose pink waffenfarbe denotes panzer, motor recon, armored train personnel, or anti-tank. The army trade badge is a motor transport nco. And the rank would be that of a Oberfeldwebel, or Sgt Major. The tunic itself looks like others I have seen. With similar traits, odd fitting collar tabs, number of buttons, pockets, etc. I could not comment on authenticity without better pics or actual hands on study. Others may be able to tell you from a glance so wait for more to chime in. K

    This is not a Waffenrock.

    It's a Reichswehr-model service tunic [Dienstrock], more precisely, a tailor-made private-purchase tunic [Eigener Rock] which men and NCOs could wear for walking-out. These differed from the issue tunics in several features, the most notable being the branch-color piping down the front.

    These tunics could be worn out until 31 March 1942.
