    A transitional tunic with the white Kreis piping but pre-1939 insignia. I have seen it before.

    i hate to ressurect an old thread but its a question on the same uniform, i actually have it in hand now (and it looks a bit different than in the photo) i gave it the blacklight test and everything except the white piping on the collar checks out, for some reason the stuching that attaches the kreis level piping glows under uv light while the rest is fine, could this be some post war update? and also do amtsleiter tabs ever tarnish slightly gold? the collar tabs definitely have a hint of gold throughout them

    As you have said, the piping may well be re applied.
