These drapes were hung at venues the Reichsmarschall would be attending on official business . drape is approx 11ft x 11ft. and still retains its colour it has some small damage which is seriously worth repairing as this is an extremely rare item.

Very nice example of an early pattern officers tunic to a Leutnant in an Artillery company, tunic is styled on the Reichswehr pattern tunic, dark green collar eight button front two breast pockets with flaps and lower slash pockets also with flaps.Exterior of tunic has the political back cut (see images). All insignia is in silver bullion with sew-in shoulderboards. Overall a nice example of a textbook tunic...
SA MANN\'S DAGGER WITH HANGER.
A nice early example with its hanger, dagger is in good overall condition, nice tight fit to the scabbard, all the wood and nickle fittings are in good condition, as is the blade. Rear of crossguard has been engraved with what appears to be the recipients membership number. Maker is Gustav Voss of Solingen. Bottom nickle fitting (chape) is a little loose, screws need tightening. But overall an above average example.
SS 2ND PATTERN CAMO SMOCK
A very nice example of a Oak Leaf pattern smock. this pattern is known as the red/pink pattern.This is an identical constructed smock to the green/brown Waffen SS patterns . the origins of these smocks is unclear in the late 1980's a large bale turned up with many of the outer smocks ravaged by rodents (I actually owned one of the badly damaged ones myself at the time). Opinions are divided on these smocks, some say they was made under SS contract by a non-German satellite country, others that they were made in Russia for a soviet war film.However a substantial amount of collectors and dealers are now beginning to believe that they are in fact originals, as the quality is too good for film props. A fact determined by their increase in value over the years. Consignment..
