    Default Black Panzer Wrap

    Hello Mates,

    Can I please ask for your opinions on this wrap? The seller says it was modified by the veterans son. The son must have added button holes and ripped the pockets off. Would it be possible to restore this at all? Or is it beyond restoring? And most important do you think it stands a good chance of being original? For me I think it's good. The stamps also look legit IMO. But I dont know much on wraps sadly.

    The pockets would not have been on it originally,so they must have been added and then taken back off. Sorry Pat, but you really need to know what your doing when buying a wrap, as the fakes are good enough to fool even those considered to be expert by many, so you should spend a lot of time doing research before even thinking about buying one IMHO.

    Also, you really need much better pics than theses to be able to tell good from bad, again IMHO.
    Regards,

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    I looked at some originals and I noticed that some did'nt have any pockets. But I read a WAF thread about it and they said its unfortunate the pockets were ripped out. They also didint say it was fake. I contacted the seller and asked for better photos. These are all I have to go on at the moment, sorry.

    Cheers, Pat

    It has been heavily modified and it would be very hard to restore. I would pass on it.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The wrap looks ok but wouldnt have had the pockets when first made so these have been added postwar and also the button cut outs wouldnt have been showing as they are now also done postwar ,if cheap it may be worth buying but would take quite some work to put back as original

    Thanks for the help and replies gents. I will pass as the work would be far too much. I was just tempted because of the low price.

    Thanks, Pat

    Smart move on your part!! The collar, the front, buttons and button holes and alot more have been modified on this wrap. I do not believe that you could ever get it back to a presentable configuration of it's original self.

    Bringing life to this old thread...the wrap was once mine. Pat, it is original i guarantee for it. But i also considered the work in restoring it for kind of impossible to do due to its modifications. A lot of uniforms were modified for post war wearing as ordinary people had nothing to dress on and the uniforms were nice and warn wool stuff. I bought it with the idea of restoring it and checking everything in details because the lining remaind untouched. ANyways its long gone now, but just wanted to tell you - it was nice and original peace. Thats why i sold it very cheap.
