    That's a nice looking one. May I ask, is it one from your collection?

    No, sir, it is not.

    I do own a similar item on a black tunic.

    I just admired it and wanted to add it to the heap of images here, since we endure so many fakes and junk.
    damit, basta.

    Thank you. I am very lucky to have found it.

    I had another LAH tunic which I sold and it became very famous. How droll.

ID:	660230Said tunic, but it had a woven cuff title, which is also not especially common.

    It's amazing to me that any LSSAH tunics survived the war, given the nature of postwar Germany. Many people decry the 'looting' that took place at the hands of American and other Allied servicemen, but if not for that, many more items like those in this thread would have been lost forever.

    The looting of such uniforms was actually a legal process of disarmament and post war occupation normal in most such epochs. Until very recently, such items as these garnered little interest
    in Germany outside of a specific circle, who normally kept to itself. The institutions of history and memory that exist today did not exist, say, when I first went to the FRG in 1969, where the
    subject was treated in a very stylized way, and this stuff was considered less than junk.
    Truth be told, the Germans looted all the places they occupied as have conquering armies since the institution of conquering armies was established.
    For my part, I want all my heap to go back to Germany at some point.
    If some puerile neo Nazi today gets worked up on line that the Amis stole the old uniforms, such outrage says more about the year 2014 and generalized anti Americanism than it does about the posture of this regalia in the years and even first decades after the war.

    Well, I have no treasures, so when my small heap is eventually dispersed, I don't think anyone will be clamoring to restore it to the Fatherland.
