Pre WW I enlisted man’s tunic from a Luftschiffer-Abteilung.
As a prewar tunic, it is dark-blue (dunkel-blau) rather than feldgrau. The tunic has eight silver-toned buttons that extend down the tunic’s front. Red trims the collar’s top and extends down the tunic’s front. The same trim is seen at the cuffs. The collar has a black background and two very long kragenspiegel that wrap around the collar’s front and side. The cuffs are also black, with twin white kragenspiegel. Set on each of these two kragenspiegel are another two silver-toned buttons. The shoulder straps are red, with a yellow embroidered “L.” Each shoulder strap’s underlay is dark-blue. One end of the strap is sewn-in, while the other is attached with a smaller, domed, silver-toned button. Each button sports a “2” for Kompagnie Nr 2. The vent flap on the tunic’s rear is trimmed in red and features another six silver-toned buttons. Inside the tunic, we see it is a privately-purchased item, complete with a silk liner. Only a trace of moth tracking shows on the surface. It is a superb tunic.
This is a consignment item
