Here we have an Army (Heer) Hauptmann Officers Artillery Service Tunic (Waffenrock). It is constructed out of a multi-piece field-gray and forest green (collar) wool. The wool shows soilage and discoloration throughout. The tunic has four pleated pockets with buttoned scalloped flaps. There are four award loops to the left breast pocket, along with three just above it. The front vertical closure has eight green-brown painted aluminum-alloy pebbled buttons that are all maker marked to the underside. The collar tabs are machine stitched on. They are constructed out of a buckrahm and cardboard base that is covered in a field-gray wool and stitched on bullion/flatwire and rayon threads, along with four bright red (artillery) twisted rayon service branch stripes. The Hauptmann rank shoulder boards are the sew-on type. They are constructed out of a cardboard base that is covered in a bright red wool backing, with a stitched on Russian braid silver-flatwire covered cotton string, which is underneath two gilt pips to each (one appears to be replaced). The officer’s breast eagle is constructed out of hand embroidered silver bullion/flatwire on a green wool that has been hand stitched to the tunic. The interior is lined in brown cotton that looks great. It is a small-medium size. A good officer’s tunic!
