    This is a post war Federal German Polizei tunic marked POL Hbg (Polizei Hamburg district). Wartime you would only see the "PO"
    stamp + date or sometimes "POL". The added 1941 date in a different color ink (blue) was done to fool...The sleeve eagle was added to make it a war time appearing piece...Another clue that it is a post war pattern is that it has combat support straps/hooks BUT technically it is not a war pattern combat tunic as it has an open neck collar, another major red flag. Wrong cut! In regards to it not having subdued rank insignia on a combat tunic that is false information. These rank insignia only came in shiny material for NCO'sm(sometimes officer Pol rank insignia can be observed in subdued thread...

    Unfortunately your reply Nick is a bit late for the thread starter.
    He got banned from the forum long ago so probably he will never find out that he has a post war tunic.

    He likes to read rather than write. But his knowledge on uniforms is remarkable. I know him form another forum.

    Yeah that's the spirit all right!
    BUT try explaining that to my wife! (time spent on the computer...away from wife and kid's activities...)
    She is not a fan of this hobby and 2 forums to follow can be very time consuming! Oh well. I will give it my best shot!
