    Looks like a good private purchase tunic.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The tunic IMO is a Oberfeldmeister denoted by the Gold "Pip" on the shoulder board and collar tabs..
    The main thing that throws me off is the "Up turned" cuffs and it is a "5" button tunic..

    Have to agree with Gwar with the number of buttons on the front but they did have the deep turned up cuffs - I also note that the reverse is missing the two buttons at the waist line to be used as belt ramps.

    I can see some similarities, but no up turned cuffs.. Some of these photos come from Wim. Saris's / or his research and others the net..

    Gwar- Tunic is noted as a 1940 officers pattern as shown- the picture and information is as per Angolia/Littejohn book "Labor organizations of the Reich"

    Thanks for the response... But that is a "6" button tunic in your post.. The tunic in question is a "5" button..
