    Default Interesting Luftwaffe tunic + KZ tabs

    Found this intriguing tunic for 835; it's obviously a regular Luftwaffe but the soldier's been temporarily assigned to a concentration camp. I haven't actually seen one of these tab types on a tunic before... do you think it's worth it?
    Cheers,
    Robbie

    Providing it's an original KZ temp guards tunic, and not a re-badged one (which it looks like it is........yes, It's worth it

    If it helps, there're some more pictures, and I asked for some of the provenance. And thanks; I haven't ever seen one of these before so I was rather excited to find it. Do you have any idea how much you'd expect to see one of these going for?
    Kind regards,

    It's coming from a reliable source. And to be fair, it's worth what someone wants to pay for it

    As this is one of the tabs found in Dachau sourced vet lots, it would not be difficult to create this by rebadging an original Luftwaffe tunic. Without rock solid provenance, I would consider it a difficult piece to ever sell in the future. This is not saying the piece is not original. However, it would be easy to create this by applying the tab with soe period thread.

    Which unit is that? Was the Luftwaffe integrated in Concentration Camps?
    The tunic looks good but in this compilation?

    Hi Robbie, I posted a series of rare photos of this tab in wear the other week.

    My feeling is that the tunic, while original in all parts, is most likely fabricated.

    Hi Nikolaus, in 1944 10,000 over age men from the Heer & Luftwaffe were transfered to the KL system so that younger SS guards could be posted to the front.

    Cheers, Ade.
