different style tunic

This fellow has what looks like a late Reichswehr tunic modified from a WWI era M10. During the Reichswehr era, the early feldgrau tunics with piping had the piping removed from the tunic front, cuffs replaced, and re-issued with Reichswehr era litzen. There are no NCO's or an officer in sight.

Every tunic in sight in the group has rounded shoulder straps, not the WWI and Freikorps era pointed straps. If the details of the photo were really sharp and the belt buckles could be seen, a Weimar eagle would be another clue to use for an approximate date.

As a guess, I'd suggest late 1920's for this group.

Really nice photo!
