question on kreisleitung tunic
hi, I am currently in the process of buying this from the collectors guild but my main question is why is the pre 1938 insignia for kreisleitung piped in white instead of black? a post 38 upgrade or something else? any help is great thanks!

found a picture of it on google, here it is
A transitional tunic with the white Kreis piping but pre-1939 insignia. I have seen it before.
LIFE'S LOSERS NEVER LEARN FROM THE ERROR OF THEIR WAYS.
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.
