WWII German Waffen SS Standartenführer Dress Jacket-This is a beautifully made, private purchase example for an extremely high ranking Waffen SS officer! The jacket is produced in soft green wool. It is in fine condition, with ever so minor wear and discoloration from use. There are four pleated pockets with scalloped flaps. There is a six button closure and all buttons are green finished pebbled metal. The hand applied collar tabs are produced in soft black velvet with silver bullion oak leaf sprig and silver bullion rope twist piping. There is minor wear and a few pulls (see pics). The sew in shoulder boards are matte grey flat wire braid with a black underlay. There is a secondary underlay of grass green. There are two metal pips on each board. These are for a Waffen SS Standartenführer which is equivalent to a full colonel in the US Army. The green underlay indicates association with a rifle regiment. The sleeve eagle is also hand applied. It is produced in silver bullion with bright silver flat wire highlights over black wool. It is beautiful. There are loops for three badges which are included. Also included at NO CHARGE is a REPLICA LONG RIBBON BAR. The interior is fully lined in green rayon which is in fine condition. There is a single pocket with a slot for an edged weapon (no strap, never had one). It looks like there was a tailor tag in the neck area but it is missing. The tunic is a large size. What a find!
