East German (DDR) Items
Complete Uniform of the Combat Force of the "Stasi" (Item DDR 1-1)
DESCRIPTION: The mission of the dreaded "Stasi" was to protect the East German communist state from penetration by foreign intelligence services, to root out domestic traitors of the DDR, to provide security for government buildings and personnel, to execute special military operations including overseas and to provide the Stasi with a combat arm similar to that of a motorized rifle regiment. This was the "Wacht Rgt. F Dzierzynski" whoe mission it was to provide the Stasi with a reliable combat force under its own command. Organization: Expanded regiment numbering about 10,000 elite guard troops, the unit had at its disposal the same type of weapons as a motorized refle regiment: assual rifles, artillery, anti-aircraft guns, armored personnel carriers and helicopters. Their uniform consisted of stone gray tunic and bloused jophers for officers. This outfit we offer is the most complete one we have ever seen -- offered with cap, tunic, shirt, agulette, dress belt, dagger and hanger straps for dagger. On the breast are four heo medals and on the other side pocket is the DDR sport badge in silver. One of the medals (last one with red ribbon) is the Treue Dienst medal (Faithful Service). Actually, all are for true service in various grades. This guy was a real dedicated communist 1st Class! This is a very rare grouping from a very elite unit of the DDR and the man was an Oberst (Colonel), a high rank in special elite forces like this. The uniform is in great, 100% condition throughout. We may not see one like this again. Spectacular.
PRICE: $1,350.00 High for a DDR uniform? Certainly NOT high for this one! Discounted again now to the incredibly low price of $999.00 for the whole ensemble. This is a super bargain!!!

This dagger possibly was meant to be issued to an NVA general or some other high-ranking Muckide–Muck.
