    Any ideas on this please? Label too faded to make out anything other than what looks to be a 1973 date.

    Bundesrepublik Deutschland, Schleswig-Holstein Polizei.  Worn from the mid 1960s through to the 1976/78 transition to national standard uniform.  I don't have my rank books handy, but this is a mid grade rank similar to a military NCO rank. Not too valuable for most collectors as these uniforms aren't difficult to find and the number looking for them is relatively small. Unlike, say, Third Reich Very Happy

    Not sure if I would bother tracking them down but would there have been any sleeve/shoulder insignia on a tunic like this please?

    Many Thanks

    I'll save you some effort... S-H Polizei did not have sleeve badges of any type on their service jackets Smile Off the top of my head they were the only ones that didn't for this time period. Hamburg had junior ranks on both sleeves but also no Polizei badge.
