    Default Is this a german ww2 coats?

    I'm just a beginner in collecting militaria and I got a hold of these two coats. Does anybody know what they are? The first one im pretty sure is german becayse of its buttons.

    Would appreciate some help in identifing them!


    Coat 1 says "Harefa" with letters in a green logo inside the collar, coat 2 manufacturers name is really hard to make out. I wont post pictures of the collar tags to prevent fakers.

    Hi, welcome to the forum you're at the best place to be if you're beginning to collect militaria I'm not an expert on this sort of thing, but you are right saying that the buttons on the first jacket are German. However these buttons were used on German clothing and equipment for many years after the war, personally I think the first is post war East German, possibly the second jacket too.

    Thanks

    I believe the second coat are an german ww2 coastal artillary jacket. The buttons are similar to the ones used by the coastal artillary.

    Hello,
    they're both german.
    first one is a postwar "Klepper" made of rubber
    second is a grey leather KM jacket worn by battleships and U-boote crews.
    Thanks
