    Question Need help with leather jacket identification

    hello people I'm new to this forum I bought a german leather coat about a month ago very cheap under $50AU .So I'm not to bothered if it's not military I love to ware it anyway. The person that sold it to me from germany said it was his grandfathers spare Luftwaffe coat. Apparently after the war he had it relined inside the coat.It's in amazing all-round condition with no faults.Blue/Gray in colour although it looks quiet blue when picture is taken with a flash see pictures . has what looks like painted double button wrist clasps the belt has a hallmark under the main clasp see pictures Any info would be great Thanks Click image for larger version.

    The coat may be made in Germany, but to my eyes I cant see anything that connects it to the war.

    Thanks KM Morris .I thought as much I got it online and could not see much of the details because of poor pictures and it was so cheap I was not bothered. Didn't think he was telling the truth. but thought for the price i'd take the gamble

    As it appears to be marked as being made in Germany, I think it is post war, though pre war might be possible as the marking of the country of origin started because of the Americans prior to WWI, but in this case I would say it is post WWII and probably not military IMHO.

    A nice coat for a sensible price, just not WWII military.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    My LW coat has similar leather covered buttons , but it also has shoulder boards and a dagger hanger . Look inside the pockets for a makers label . But It looks post war to me .
    Cheers Chris
