so it is a WW2 Item then?
i did buy it in a group it would look very nice on display if some one could change the buttons and get more officer items to put with it
but i am thinking of selling it hopefully to get my money back on it, as i can't display it ATM

The bluish color of the garment makes me think it must have been for the Kriegsmarine, whereas the other services had a grey leather.
Here is a thread on the Ledermantel to give you an idea of what they look like:
Post Your Ledermantels!
do you knwo where i could get some buttons for this, as the brown buttons kill the hole look of the Coat
by Adrian Stevenson
yeah i paid about £200-225 for it TBH in a group
yeah its smells like 70 year old leather, would you do anything to bring it back up to good quality spec?
so whats been altered apart from the buttons?
ill post some pics in the daylight for a better look does seem more back but im unsure
Thanks every one for your input
Yes, you would need the long-shank buttons with the s-rings to keep them in place.
They are very hard to find, and last time I saw them being sold, a dealer was asking $20/ button....
Hi thanks, S rings like these?
