"Wir sollen auch unser Leben für die Brüder lassen" (1.Joh.3.16):

The way ahead in this conundrum is to send the item to one of the principles here, if one seriously wants a firm answer.
This kind of thing is exceptionally rare, much more so than my black uniforms. This kind of thing was used up, and more or less replaced by the military cut blouse
and one did not want to be wearing it in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Funny enough now I am the owner of this tunic. I was thinking possibly private purchase but can anybody give me a more definitive answer?
mine was a NVA with all the sew ons
How's that colt45?
We have a lot of very clear images of black SS tunics on this site. You might want to look at them to orient yourself.
The authentic grey Einheitstuch blouse or tunic in field grey is a very rare item.
The images earlier in this thread were also of below average quality.
I also wrote that if you want a bomb proof opinion, send it to an expert whom we all trust. I.e. Bob Coleman or others.
Or Dr. CMH.
They are real experts.
I owned exactly two grey SS Tuch tunics and or blouses in about fifty and more years of collecting.
The one grey tunic of mine ( ca 1972-4) was identical in all aspects to the make of a black SS tunic.
I got rid of them in that Nixonian epoch.
Ok and how would I go about that? Are there any of these experts in the Miami area?
