Stunning ,,Grossdeutschland” Armored Reconnaissance Wrapper


This is just an outstanding, service used and original badged piece, consisting of an Army cut black wrapper with the typical angled button flap, central rear seam, and in this case, a Vienna clothing distribution mark ‘WB.’ The lining is the expected mouse-grey synthetic silk. The machine sewn collar tabs and exquisite slip-on oberleutnant boards are golden yellow piped, indicative of reconnaissance; with “GD” ciphers on each board — undisturbed and showing correct patina and wear. The cufftitle has soldier-added braid to the top and bottom edges, repurposing a classic enlisted variety of cuffband. In all cases, the appointments of this piece show hallmarks of period wear and patina, with no minor age and use wear, and some missing buttons. The wrap has been in a very advanced collection and is presented for sale to its prospective new owner. COA accompanies.
