    No tags anywhere green cuffs inside the jacket sleeves. The lining used to be red but is faded. Supposedly the owner also had a German cigarette case that was in one of the pockets when he received it he sold that at a seperate auction. It had a German bomber medal glued to the case.

    "The 2 breast zippers and the 2 side pocket zippers are unmarked - they was original on this
    jacket - the front zipper is from the famous german brand zipp and was exchanged during or after the WW2"

    Found some information that Zipp was a german brand zipper manufacturer during the war. This is from an ebay auction for a leather jacket. The common style worn.

    My research shows there was not just one type of jacket that was issued. The pilots jackets had to be either brown or black.

    I would say this is a post war jacket. Pilots jackets usually had breast eagles and shoulder straps applied.

    Cheers, Ade.
