This beautifully preserved German World War 2 tunic and visor cap set is from a Heer Infanterie Hauptmann (Captain) of the Reserve. Aside from a few minor moth holes, most notably under the armpits and out of direct sight, this set is immaculate! The matching visor cap sports a more rare bullion cockade and wreath, but was not found with the typical officer chin cord. This may very well have been removed by the officer because he preferred the look without it. This German WWII tunic also displays the rare “Kuban” shield stitched firmly to the left arm. The Kuban shield was a German military award instituted on September 21, 1943 to commemorate those who fought to preserve the bridgeheads in the Kuban region from February 1943 until they were abandoned in October.
