    I have a gun dealer friend of mine who traded a some fishing gear for a mint condition WWII German Military Officer's uniform with all the goodies. The problem is he has no idea of what this thing is worth. Anybody have some references on the web where we can possibly get some more info on this uniform and possibly value?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    I don't have any pictures available at this time, but I can give you a very rough description. It is light green with (2) gold cloth bars sewn on each shoulder outlined in red. The color scheme kinda reminded more of a modern day russian uniform. Every German uniform I've seen in the movies was outlined in grey if I'm not mistaken. It has the matching hat, vest, trousers, and even the overcoat. If I were to see it somewhere else I could identify it. The manufacturer of the garmet was something that started with an 'S' if I'm not mistaken. Oh yeah, the hat is outlined in red as well.

    Here's some more information that I just received on this. He was reading this stuff to me on the phone so the spelling is most likely off. He has been told that it is an Artillary Captain's Uniform:

    Blouse - Albert Eahldieck Vahldic Mandaberg Germany
    Hat – Diamond Shap Hat , Nazi Eagle Emblem. ERSTKlassic
    E.sturz
    ANH.F.Jacob
    Dresden

    He's gonna email me some pictures as well and when I get them I'll post them as well.
