It is a Reichswehr Rock that was apparently re-used during the TR era.
The Hoheitsabzeichen is original. It is the version produced for EM/NCOs and meant for the Waffenrock. The way it is sewn over the pocket flap is a bit unusual for a continental tunic, but already seen. Usually it was done only with tropical tunics as they have an open collar that could hide a large part of the eagle if it was sewn above the flap.
If these shoulderboards are period sewn on this tunic, it means that the bearer served within the former 6. Preussiches Reiter Regiment, later Kavallerie Regiment Schwedt...

Walter Borg (ex-MI6) Agent and radio operator in Malta, Tunisia and Italy between 1941 and 1945. Arrested twice, tortured twice, escaped twice, survived the war...

Thanks Jphillip that gives me somewhere to start.
Is it possible to trace a person from this info.
Any idea what this is worth with its trousers ?
