GERMAN WORLD WAR II KRIEGSMARINE OFFICER'S DUTY TUNIC

This uniform is produced from a dark blue wool with a whip cord texture. This is perhaps the best recognized German Navy uniform to the average collector.

The tunic is a double breasted, navy blue color, duty uniform of a Korvettenkapitan assigned to sea duty. While it displays the expected level of wear for its age, it is still fully intact, without major moth nips, rips or other significant visible deficiencies.

Below is a photograph showing an enlarged view of the three gold stripes and star found at the bottom of each arm of this tunic. For reference, the three stripes indicate the wearer's rank to be a Korvettenkapitan, while the star indicates the wearer is a sea duty officer.

Below is a photo showing an enlarged view of some of the buttons, as well as the 1939 Iron Cross second class ribbon sewn through the top tunic button hole.



Below is an enlarged photograph showing the "KORREKT" maker label sewn inside the pocket of this tunic.


Here is a photo showing a slightly enlarged view of the breast eagle on this tunic. For reference, while it is clearly machine sewn, the stitching does not show on the artificial silk lining behind it. This means it must have been put on the coat before the lining was installed.


Below is a photo showing a reverse side view of the 1939 Iron Cross second class that is machine sewn through the top button hole of this tunic.


The photo below is showing the location of the "KORREKT" maker label on the inside artificial silk lining of the pocket, which is otherwise hidden from view.




PROVENANCE AND CONDITION OF ARTIFACTS

Unless stated elsewhere in this description, this item is completely original to the pre May 1945 period. Moreover, it is in suitable condition to be displayed, handled or otherwise included in any collection of original World War II German militaria without alteration or treatment of any kind.

 
Unfortunately, most of the items that are being presented under the listing of Kriegsmarine have been acquired by RARE MILITARIA from various sources over a period in excess of forty (40) years. Consequently, in most instances, it is virtually impossible at this point for our firm to be able to provide you with any reliable level of provenance vis a vis the actual original owner of this uniform and any accessories. We are prepared, nevertheless, to guarantee that the components used in their manufacture, as well as the procedures in the assembly, fully comport with all standards employed by German industry before May 1945.
