Need help on Kriegsmarine tropical jacket
This is my first post on this forum, and I hope there is someone out here who can help with this uniform.
I have a KM tropical jacket, but there are some things I have problems with...
I'm pretty sure the insignia is original, but post-war applied on the uniform.
The buttons show different conditions, from almost brand new to heavy used.
I also have never before seen this type of jacket.
What are your opinions on this jacket?

The jacket looks similar to the so called KM brown summer work jacket, but I have not seen one with the rounded corners on the lower edge before. The eagle has been very badly applied recently I think.
its just an opinion.
Thanks for the help, Jerry!
Isn't there anyone else here who knows if this jacket is original ww2 or not???
Hi Geert, KM is not really my thing.
But my feeling is this jacket is postwar with newly applied wartime insignia. Concerns would be the cut, lack of markings and dressing pocket.
Sorry I cannot be more precise.
