Swedish me thinks ,Cheers Paul
That's not swedish as the swedish stamp includes three crowns, not just one like here.
In my opinion, it's a norvegian tunic pimped to look like a Feldbluse 1933 modified 1943.
You can clearly see where it was modified (for a reenactor ??)
Those shoulderstraps are just...terrible
By the way, if someone ever find a 1941 dated Feldbluse 1943, please let me know...

Now you mention it the crown does look the same as the decals on the Norwegian reissue german helmets, cheers Paul
Sweden in origination. These were available in huge surplus - overcoats too. Abandoned long ago as an acceptable replacement for German re-enacting. NH
Thanks for your thoughts. I thought it may also be for a re-enactor. It all makes sense... JPhilip, I know you would get a kick out of those "Shoulderstaps"!! Looking forward to getting your new book on German Equipment..
Thanks to all!!
