WOW! Very nice set you go there
Very nice indeed. I do not want to put too much a point on this, but your tunic is of a unit raised in the year 1940 with the configuration of insignia in use post late 1937.
The cap is of an earlier date.
Sta. 122 was established in Strassburg/Strasbourg after the German conquest of France.
The insignia in use at the time said cap was more or less in use were the white or grey embroidery on the collar patch and the colored cuff titles.
Of course, variations existed.
The use of the alu embroidery for the collar patch of the Allgem. SS in enlisted ranks was first permitted at the time that the colored cuff titles were phased out. That is, in the course of 1937, at which time the Allgem. SS clothing regulations were revised from their posture of 1934. We have discussed this issue a hundred times here.
Needless to say, not all adhered to said regulation.
Without dispute, however, is the fact that the 122 Sta. was a lately raised unit, part of the wave of such Allgem. SS units organized in the years 1938-1940 in the tide of Nazi conquests.

A Sta. 122 Montur would require more this cap.

Anyway you know in a regiment, moreover in a fresch occupied territory, could easily arrive men from other regiments.
The points could be... how a 122 tunic could be found in a Soviet museum? So... i don't think the 122 tab could rexist so much in my tunic. As i said the tab was reapplied as confirmed by seller and Francoise collectors who know this tunic since 20/25 years ago (other insignas were found into pocket).
Attached an image of the 122 tab in wartime period

Very salient point of information, indeed.
The material I have included is, to the best of my forty five years of experience, organic to the textiles shown.
Schwerin and Strasbourg were both liberated by U.S. troops.
I had not known of Schwerin's fate, but the U.S. withdrew soon after taking the town, to be replaced by the UK and later USSR forces.
