Original Militaria And Curios From All Periods
  • Fine WWII German Army Medical Officers Tunic with Original Ribbons and Award loops


    This fine conditioned example of a WWII German medical officer's tunic is in excellent shape. And, being a private purchase item, sports all the options available for a fashion conscious officer such as the stylized cuffs, bullion hand embroidered breast eagle slash pockets, and dagger suspension clip. Made of a herringbone patterned wool gabardine with a bottle green collar, this tunic has an original to the piece ribbon for the EK2 sewn through the buttonhole and the remaining device with swords on the left breast. Also, there are loops for the EK1 and another badge along with loops for additional ribbon bars. The vet's family removed the missing items before his son was able to manage his father's estate. The loops will provide the locations for someone to rebuild the grouping if they so choose. 

    The liner is beautifully tailored and is a blue satin type material with typical soiling found in tunics that were actually worn. Also, there is a lot of attention to detail even though there is no tailor's tag present. A name has been inked on the inside back below the collar which appears to be A. A. Guinn, but I cannot say whether or not this was done by the owner. It is not the name of the veteran who brought it home. The shoulder boards are the sewn-in type with two silver pips along with a medical emblem affixed over silver tresse with blue backing. 

    All in all, a great tunic that would be best served displayed on a mannequin with the appropriate headgear.
