These late war Camouflage material fur lined trigger finger gloves came from a vet in 1977.
They were combat used and captured during the Ardennes offensive in December 1944, and used by that GI for the rest of the winter. I bought all his war stuff and got home and looked these over.
The I realized they had used rare cloth helmet covers to manufacture them! The covers are worth like $3+ grand today!!
This was acquired from a guy who had a real eye and knew his stuff. Martin Kampmann, was what I would call an expert, and this was his cap before I bought it from him.
The only Heer Example I ever felt comfortable with enough to pay out my money to own all these years.
The fakers were simply not this good back 30 years ago.
Marty tragically passed away at far too young an age. He was truly one of the good guys in this hobby.
This is the mid-late war Panzer wraparoud tunic I have had in my personal collection for decades.
It is for a junior NCO, who served in the Afrika Campaign.
It shows moderate war and age with the expected signs of service use, such as wear to the area behind the neck on the collar, as shown. It is a medium size, but the interior in markings have faded out with use and laundering. No oil , diesel, or other stain or discolorations. Well maintained with only a couple minor and very well done mended spots.
If you need more photos, I understand and will try to show anything you need to see.
I have much larger and more detailed versions of these photos.
Please do not make me waste my time just to look. My price is firm and researched, ... and FAIR.
If you are not a buyer, serious and ready or able to do a deal, there are plenty of things to look at on the internet.
All insignia is correct for this uniform, and of course everything is wartime original.

A very Nice Pair of British Devil Buttons.
I was told by a collector of Brit items that these were used by the The Inns of Court Regiment.
It was a squadron of cavalry and two companies of infantry. It was transferred to the Royal Armoured Corps in 1940. From January 23, 1941 until January 15, 1943, the regiment was part of the 9th Armoured Division in Great Britain. On D-Day, C Squadron of the regiment landed on Juno Beach with the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division. During the campaign in Northwest Europe of 1944-45, the Inns of Court, organized as an armoured car regiment, was the reconnaissance asset of the I Corps..
