ENLISTED REICHSMARINE SAILOR’S DRESS TUNIC’S EXTENSION BUTTONS

SKU: 13-928

$125.00

After WW I and before the Kriegsmarine’s (1935-1945) creation, the Reichsmarine (1919-1935) served as Germany’s Navy. Most of its traditions were similar to those of the Kaiserliche Marine. Its uniforms, headdresses, etc., primarily were identical. One small change was that the Imperial German Period’s Hohenzollern Crown was deleted from its buttons, badges, and so on. Today we are offering a pair of extension buttons that were used on enlisted sailors’ dress tunics. These two buttons are attached to a small chain. The two buttons are then inserted into buttonholes on the tunic’s opposite sides. The chain allows the tunic to remain “closed” without being tightly buttoned. The two small buttons do NOT boast Hohenzollern Crowns. Instead, they are decorated only with the German Navy’s fouled anchor. Each button sports a manufacturer’s hallmark. While not totally correct for use on a Kaiserliche Marine dress tunic, they could be used in a pinch for display purposes. Naturally, they can be used on Reichsmarine tunics. The device is in top condition.
