N004576 NSKK SERVICE TUNIC. (Dienstrock)

BACKGROUND: The development of the NSKK, National Sozialistisches Kraftfahr Korps, (National Socialist Motor Corps), can be traced back to 1923 when the SA introduced a Kraftfahr Abteilung, (Motor Section), to transport personnel as required. In 1928 the SA Motor section was expanded to Kraftfahrstaffeln, (Motor Squadrons). In an attempt to create a national motor corps the NSAK, National Sozialistisches Automobil Korps, (National Socialist Automobile Corps), was formed in April 1930 as a NSDAP auxiliary organization subordinate to the SA. In early 1931 Adolf Hühnlein was appointed as Chief of the NSAK and proposed a name change to NSKK, which was officially accepted in April 1931. Originally personnel of the NSKK wore the same brown shirt uniform as the SA Motor Squadron personnel until the NSKK Service tunic was introduced in 1936.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Private purchase, brownish/olive green wool blend construction tunic features a four button front closure with small fold back lapels and chocolate brown wool lay down collar. Tunic has two pleated patch breast pockets and two pleated hip pockets, all with scalloped button down flaps. Very nice full liner. Original tailors labels and NSKK/RZM Dienstrock oilcloth tag. Arm eagle and shoulder board look to be restored. Missing the collar tabs and sleeve diamond (You can see the outline where both were removed). Buttons look to be all original stitching. Tunic is roughly size 40" chest. Very nice condition original tunic, just needs some insignia.
