The pictures of what you describe as an early Waffen SS coat are richly present in the Beaver books.
The SSVT and the Waffen SS are, more or less, ca. 1938-1939 the very same thing.....
Stamps are unit stamps of the SSVT, or SSTV, as well as Verwaltungsamt SS stamps, as well as RZM/SS or whatever buttons and so forth.
All these things are illustrated here. That is, on this site in my more than eighteen thousand posts.

all of this can and will be faked, so you have to factor such larceny into the mix.
Good luck. I have done enough on this score for now. Someone else can carry the burden.
Real grey pre 1939 uniforms of the SS are stunningly rare. That's why I only collect the caps, and not these ratted out tunics, to which too much controversy adheres.
Call me simple minded and spiessig, for that's just what I am...

Shea has some very early uniforms ex the Beaver collection, but they are or are not redecorated.
