    We will need better photos. Why is the cap covering up the collar? It may be a good transitional period Feldbluse but these photos make it hard to be certain. NH

    looks like a six button frontage .....the linings right, and it has a known RB number along the bandage pocket, the eagle has been taken off and re-sewn...........badly, then taken off again, but it's the pockets that are confusing me. They are scalloped at the top and not flat with no pleats. It certainly looks at first glance to be a 43 pattern tunic, a late war one, or it could be a foreign tunic that has been modified, the Germans were fond of changing the dull normal collar to the more noticeable dark green 36 type collar, especially the old sweats
    Better pictures for sure, but I would not dismiss it out of hand

    From initial looks at the textiles it looks to be good, but much better close up photos would be needed to completely verify.

    Hello,
    It is a quite used regulation Feldbluse 1933 modified 1942 with the normal type of pockets/flaps for this type.
    Like Neil, i was wondering why this visor cap in very poor condition is covering up the replaced collar.....?
    Feldblusen in this condition are not very desirable, unless you can have it cheap....
    Better quality than quantity, unless you can afford both....
    Thanks

    JPhillip is correct - nothing wrong with the pocket/flaps. I have one exactly like it. I used the term "transitional" to describe it. First the pleats disappeared and then the scalloped pocket flaps. These were economy measures that were phased in over time.
    I think it is a good Feldbluse with some condition issues. If it is priced in the 175 to 200 range it might be worth the effort to make it presentable. NH
