another uniform that somehow survived and I did not buy.
I did buy this one for a lot less, and it is surely as good.
All foetid woolens and now generally less to be had, and likely too costly.
It came just like this without the Kampfbinde. But I added one, of course.
There was no SD rhombus to it, but it was part of an ensemble of a police officer who likely also had SS rank, as well. I only bought this black tunic and not the police tunic with it. How silly of me, but one has limits. Who was the original owner? No man can say....

For what it is worth, the police uniform. It reappeared recently in the area, but I again did not buy it. It is not my thing. The police rank and that of the SS do not match, but the runes are present to be sure.
I can cite you the titles of the process whereby police figures were integrated into the SS especially in 1938 or so.
It may have just been a fluke that the uniforms were together. I never pursued the issue at all.
