    Default Found This SS Uniform in an ATTIC!!

    I know you hear about attic finds but I really did find this set in an attic! I work as an HVAC tech and the other day I was putting a furnace in for a guy when I looked over and saw an old box/trunk that looked like it was falling apart. Well the Military Collector in me couldn't help myself so I took a closer look and pulled out an original SS uniform! I asked the guy I was working for about it and he said his father brought it home from Germany after the war. He said I could have it or he was going to throw it away because it had been up in the attic and was so dirty. I told him I was a WWII collector and I would love to have it. Then I asked about his father....he said he was in the 2nd Infantry Division and was part of the first wave on Omaha Beach!! Anyway it is a neat story and I came home with this uniform. I really don't know a lot about SS items but have come to find out that this one is pretty rare! Any help with the uniform advice etc. would be great...thanks Devin

    I can't comment on the authenticity of the uniform pieces you found, but I will tell you that the 2nd Infantry Div was not part of the first wave of the Operation Overlord (D-Day) Invasion. The first wave consisted of the: 1st, 4th, 29th, 90th Infantry Divisions and the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions.

    The 2nd ID landed on D+1, June 7th 1944.

    I hope the uniforms turn out to be legit! If so, stellar find!

    Thanks for the info...I was just quoting him. His memories of was his dad told him was very choppy at best. His dad might have said the fist wave of 2nd Infantry guys. Who knows?? I could tell he was very proud of him either way and I wasn't going to pick apart what he was telling me. He could have cared less about the German items I found so I have no reason to doubt his story.
