    Default German uniform, real or fake?

    Sorry I can't be more specific about the actual division or rank, I'm still learning in terms of Third Reich militaria. Anyway, I found this uniform for sale, I'm suspicious as always but I thought I'd post it here before abandoning hope. Any opinions? Thanks!

    Figured as much, I'll ask the seller if he can provide any better photos. Sorry for the delay.

    Forget better pics, all the items are post war.

    The greatcoat and tunic are West German, the open collars are a huge giveaway here.

    Cheers, Ade.

    bad photos but i do ntice that the eagle is in the wrong place as well as the ek2 the eagle should be direcly over the button and the ek2 should be on the button hole. even if it is a ribbon stuck there and a ek1 next to it it still isn't right as it should be on the other side
    imho this is a brand new fake

    I agree with Ade, the great coat and tunic are for sure not WWII era.
    About the leather pieces i cannot comment.
    Looking for the photo albums of Leutnant Emil Freitag, 3. / G.R. 377

    As Ade said, typically post war design.
