Here is my Unteroffizier waffenrock I picked up at the SOS on Friday. Infantry regiment 129 company-1 Private tailored with label and matching name tag to Unteroffizier Mayer dated ? Looks like 1937. Beautiful wide boards with the embroidered 129

Yeah, I saw this dishrag on Friday as well.

Just kidding, Tom.

You have a great eye and even better taste.

It was funny how all the dagger guys never gave it a second look kind of like bringing a whore to church!

You said it... we were mostly dagger guys.

But, it is a beauty, and I learned something about shoulder boards.

Stunning!

Jon, if I could find them like that then the daggers might just take a back seat for a while. I can`t wait to see that other one!
