It is not a Feldbluse 1933...it is a Feldbluse 1933 with the features adopted in 1934, so a Feldbluse 1933 modified 1934.
A Feldbluse 1933 has no eyelets on the front for the hooks and the collar is Feldgrau.
Yours has eyelets on the front and a dark Feldgrau collar. You can see the difference between dark Feldgrau and dark green on the third photo that you posted. You can clearly see that your shoulderstraps are dark green and much darker than the dark Feldgrau collar.
The Feldbluse 1933, the Feldbluse 1933 modified 1934 and the Feldbluse 1933 modified 1935 have no lining at the back that's why it was decided in december 1936 to add a square piece of cloth in the middle of the back to prevent usury...
Yours was modified at depot level as it hasn't been issued to a soldier...
This a very nice example...i like it a lot...
