    Default General Officers Leather Coat

    Brown general officers leather overcoat with gilt removable buttons ,dagger slit/belt and slip on generals boards - the coat has the maker label and owner/name label with what looks to be the owners service number.There is a small back belt also with two gilt removable buttons.
    In some of the old films/picture you see Rommel inspecting the Atlantic fortifications wearing this type of brown leather coat.

    Luftwaffen Officer is also in the picture.

    Yes, it is a rare item and looks very impressive when seen but I must say it does take up some space in the hobby room.

    Thought I would add a couple close-up views of the boards and dagger pocket. Note that the boards have the same aging as the overall coat.
