I thought I would post a series of Zollschutz (Customs) uniforms as they changed a bit over time. The first I will show is a Kleiner Rock, also referred to as a Joppe, double breasted Zollbeamte (Reichsfinanzverwaltung) uniform that was worn from the time of the Weimar Republic into the early NS Zeit. The tunic is double breasted green wool with lower slit pockets, French cuffs, and hochrot (deep red) piping. The collar tabs are black with hochrot piping and the tunic has plain polished gilt Assmann buttons throughout. These collar tabs remained the same for various RFV ranks and the shoulder boards are the standard Zoll style with green/silver thread and gilt ciphers and rank pips. This particular tunic has a Koln tailor label in the neck and a removable white collar liner is still present. The straight leg trousers were black with hochrot piping on the legs.
