|WW2 Panzer Waffenrock - Kradschützen-Bataillon 1|
Panzer EM issue waffennrock-4./Kradschützen-Bataillon 1. Panzer pink piped enlisted issue waffenrock with rarely encountered chain-stitched K1 for Kradschützen-Bataillon 1. Has numbered 4 button indicating 4th company. 4./Kradschützen-Bataillon 1. K1 is under the 1st Panzer Division organizational structure.
This example is in a standard contract issue quality pre-war wool with an issue depot mark of E37. A chest size of 96cm for average displayable size and has a KVK2 ribbon in the third buttonhole, usually this is reserved for the second buttonhole. In waffenrock it is sometimes observed the third is used, this also indicates this example was worn after the war started. Has a loops set for what could be a wound badge or something else.
Has damage repaired cut to wool to the lower right front panel I have tried to capture in photos, this repair could possibly be improved or left as is, also a spot of threadbare on lower left panel in line with where a belt would be worn. There is a small stain in the interior rear skirt liner and arm pit areas, two small exterior holes also photographed. All insignia appears period applied and is as found.
A good opportunity for a very rarely encountered example to a motorcycle reconnaissance battalion and desirable pink waffenfarbe under the 1st Panzer division.
