    Hi Glenn, this was but one style of sword, they also could wear others in the Lionhead style. Not all seen here with the service dress jacket, but you get the drift.

    Here are a couple of period pics.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hello,
    That's a rather nice Feldbluse 1933 modified 1936.
    1938 does not mean that it was made in 1938, but that it was accepted in a military depot in 1938, here it looks like an E for Erfurt. The Feldbluse itself could have been made between 1936 and 1938.
    The regular collar has been replaced by a more pointed one.
    French cuffs were also added.
    The EM BeVo breast eagle was replaced by one of the Officer quality. That was often the case for senior NCOs with their "walking out" Feldbluse.
    Nice example...congrats
    Thanks

    Thank you JPhilip! You have corrected the 1938 conundrum for me. Oh yes, the dealer I got it from maintains it is a "B" 38 - Braunschweig.....oh well, either or. From what I understand, the soldier who owned this fought at the Eastern Front. I have just purchased an M40 helmet and am next interested in securing a pair of breeches. Would you be able to tell me if I should be looking for feldgrau or slate grey for the trousers?
    Many thanks to you, Glenn

    Hello Glenn,
    If the letter stamped before the 38 is a B, then it's for Berlin, not for Braunschweig.
    IMO straight pants would be preferable than breeches. You can go for both stone gray or Feldgrau pants, stone gray ones are more expensive as they're rarer. You can find a decent pair of Feldgrau pants to add to your Feldbluse and Stahlhelm...and why not a pair of marching boots and set up a nice Pionier mannequin.
    Thanks

    Hi JPhilip

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction with the pants. And Mannequin? My intentions exactly, sir! The straight pants it is, I have a lead on a salty pair, as they say, M36. The pair I am interested in have the markings of a film studio along with (I believe) the other factory markings. Dealer says this was common practice as movie studios acquired lots of assorted uniform pieces after the war. Does this sound legit to you, JPhilip?
    Thanks, Glenn

    Film studio markings can be legitimate. However, it is not unknown now for fakers to add these to bad items to try and make them seem OK.

    Cheers, Ade.
