FB and Bob, you blokes never cease to amaze me with your knowledge on these uniforms, I can look through all these threads and I just cannot for the life of me distinguish between an original piece and a fake, it doesn't seem to matter how long I stare at the various photos, I just can't see it! It is great to have your collective knowledge here, thanks for all your efforts gents. I would certainly be posting any tunic I was interested in here before I parted with a cent, you gents are a credit to our forum, Thanks,

Thanks to you all for your fine contributions to this site. Mr. Toncar has a world renowned collection, and I am glad he shares here.
Such collaboration poses a contrast to the norm, which is usually that of rancor and the manipulation of facts by a few for selfish gain, or for the sheer pleasure in generalized chaos.
In this connection, I recall here the memory of John Pepera, whose generosity with knowledge formed a monument to his collection, which has now been spread to all points of compass.
But the success of the sale of his property was assured by his engagement in these spaces to the betterment of others.
When I am free of my duties in a while, I will try to explore other facets of these uniforms for a beginner, but you others can do, as well.
Thanks to Dr. CMH for the further useful data.
The SS runes collar tab was designed especially for LAH, later in W- SS it became a wider use. But in a black uniform the tab must be worn with similar cufftitle. IMhO- the tunic is fake

Venezia vanished. I had a nice correspondence with this person prior to said event.
Dr. CMH's schwarzes Korps image is pleasing. I should get a set of such Puppen for such an Aufmarsch.

Thank you, FB. I enjoy the three dimensional appearance with the tunics displayed on a torso form and I am pleased to share the images with you and the other members of this nice forum.
Als die Nazis die Kommunisten holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Kommunist.
Als sie die Sozialdemokraten einsperrten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Sozialdemokrat.
Als sie die Gewerkschafter holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Gewerkschafter.
Als sie die Juden holten, habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Jude.
Als sie mich holten, gab es keinen mehr, der protestieren konnte.
