Very nice, rank is Hauptmann.  Panzergrenadier items are now quite highly priced. The piping colour is known as Wiesengrün, not to be confused with Grassgrün of the Jäger and Gebirgsjäger. I've now got someone to reserve for me an officer's cap of Jäger or Gebirgsjäger. It would need some slight restoration, some moth on the band around the oakleaves, these are bullion, red centre of cockade is missing, easily replaced, as are cords and eagle, nicely priced, which I will post when arrived.

Here is another uniform I picked up which includes cap, tunic and breeches- all to the same man. I believe it to be a transport admin officers uniform.

Kraftfahrbataillon / Nachschub- und Versorgungstruppe. Usually a lighter blue. The piping on tunic and breeches look more like the darker blue of the medical service, unusual that the breeches have piping, these were usually only on the full dress uniform.

Maybe it’s a mix of two of his uniforms Fritz, maybe a mix and match at the end of the war. Both the tunic and the breeches have the same name in them and the markings look contemporary to the uniform.

With regards to the colour of the waffenfarbe, you are probably right, it certainly looks like a darker blue.

cheers

That's what I thought, possibly from a previous collection, or on the other hand, if they both have the same name, then that's ok. Most unusal for piped breeches to be worn with daily service uniform.
