VINTAGE GERMAN TUNIC, LUFTWAFFE, FOR WWII RE-ENACTMENT

Station 109 is pleased to offer for sale this vintage German tunic.

The tunic is not a reproduction but a quality vintage item tailored, as the pocket label clearly shows, by  Werner Mahlberg, and then converted for theatrical or re-enactment purposes into a Luftwaffe tunic.

As the photographs show, the conversion has been professionally and convincingly transacted. Insignia includes:

  • Bullion shoulder boards
  • Bullion Luftwaffe collar flashes
  • Silver bullion and cloth pilots eagle (above the right breast pocket)
  • Iron Cross to the left breast pocket
  • Pilots metal eagle badge beneath left breast pocket, stamped ‘ C. E. Juncker Berlin SW68’
  • Red, white & black ribbon from top button hole
  • Cuff title to left sleeve.

The buttons have the correct stippled finish.

The interior of the tunic is lined in a grey material and the lining of the sleeves are in a ticking fabric.

The jacket is marked in ink on a label beneath the inside coat hanger loop ‘U46’ and this configuration also appears on one of the sleeve liners.

Condition

Some wear to the button-hole edges, although they are still robust and functional.

Small frayed area to the lining on the inside of the jacket near the collar

The tunic has been in storage for some time and a clean would spruce it up. Alternatively, you may wish to leave it as it is for that realistic battle-worn look.

Size

There is a size label in the tunic, ‘18’, but just to be on the safe side, please take heed of the measurements that we have made with the tunic laid flat:

Underarm to Underarm: 19ins

Shoulder Seam to Cuff: 24 ½ ins

Collar Seam to Hem: 27ins

Perfect fro re-enactment purposes or for mannequin display
