More detailed pictures of the tunic.
Thanks. The unit badge is not put on especially well. The piping has been mashed.
See here on others, correctly applied.
The badges are authentic.
The tunic is also authentic.
How all the bits fit together is another issue, but so long as you did not overpay for the thing, it is fine.
It should likely also have a cuff title. The later, i.e. post mid 1937 alu bordered cuff titles for the Sturm are easy to find and inexpensive.

The other thing to do is to find whether this man was in said unit, which is not an impossible task.
The thing could also have an 11 with the colored borders, also, but such would be less likely.
Thank you very much for your comments,Mr F-B.
This tunic came from England.In WAF Robert H and Ian Hulley mentioned they remember seeing this tunic long time ago,but could not find it in their arquives either.It was once for sale at hanasreich,it is still figured there in the tunic section.
Thanks for your quick Austrian research and data.Beeing an NCO isn"t it more difficult to get information about this man?Would you suggest a source for this task?
There is no visible sign of a cuff title that have been removed as long as I can see.
There are various US sites with SS person research. I do not know them all.
Good luck with your collecting.
May I note that the name tag suggests the man was in a Sturm, whether there is sign of the cuff title or not.
Thanks for showing your things.
You will find a lot of black SS material here, and far more and of far better quality than on the other site.

I´m trying to research the tunic, but the researcher asked more photos of the label,as he thinks the name I sent to him was quite strange.
I´ve written J. Wallhhofer.Do you think it may be Walchhofer?
Or somethig else?
Cheers from Brazil
