    Default Kriegsmarine Officer Reefer Jacket

    Hello,
    I don't collect uniforms but when I saw the condition and quality of this jacket I bought it. It's in unused condition, no mothing that I can see. It also has loops for three badges. Does the eagle look like it's been re-applied? Opinions appreciated. And could someone give me an idea of value?..thanks

    Wow, the faker certainly used some nice buttons and a good looking eagle.

    It looks like a decent quality jacket. If the eagle were professionally applied, it would make a better impression. I've had a couple of these and other than the eagle and possibly the IC ribbon being replaced (does it show wear, especially on the back where the button would rub against it?), it looks right. The one loop set is also correct for a KM badge with a hook and horizontal pin. Are the loops tight and made properly? This is one things most fakers don't do very well.

    But the same style was worn postwar so material quality and a real KM expert might need to offer an opinion.

    Photos don't always give enough detail to make a judgement though.

    I like the 2 button holes on the collars and the linning

    There is wear where the button rubbed on the ribbon. May be difficult to see but it's there.

    Jacket appears correct. Eagle was probably post war removed and later reapplied to restore. Not the best sewing job, but A very common practice. Rank is Oberleutnant zur See.

    I like the loop configuration. Iron Cross 1st Class on top, a minesweeper or destroyer badge and a wound badge would be very typical.

    Also, the dagger slot is a good sign. As far as I know, the postwar Bundesmarine never had a dagger...hence there would be no need for a tunic with a dagger slot.

    Thanks guys, I sold the jacket last year. I believed it was an original and that's how it was sold.
    As I collect mainly headgear I only own 1 Kriegsmarine item, a mint Officers Visor.
