    Tom...yes indeed an M62 (round shoulder boards) service jacket, looks to be "Feldjager" orange arm of service, you are right there is something wrong with the collar....and the piping around the shoulder straps has been removed, a common occurance on these 1960's tunics. When decommissioned, they for some unknown reason they removed all or most of the following :-armshield, collar patches, piping around the collar and shoulder boards and sometimes the entire shoulder board ! so jackets can be found with all or some of the above missing. To replace either the boards or the piping is difficult....and IMO not worth the time or effort. A shame, an early tunic ruined.
    Prost ! Steve.
