    Thanks a lot You are absolutly right. Two early one, and one of them have replaced buttons. The last one with ersatz cloth have two faint ink stamps. I belive it is made in 1944.

    they're both unissued, nice...
    For the first one, i woud say that all marking starting with a 4 is not necessarily a date (would be the first time ever i see a date stamped here, but who knows...?). Although its features leads me to think it's about a 1943/44 production. what a thick cloth.....for the second one, i bet for 1941...
    thanks
