    Default One more uniform question

    Hello,

    Could I please get opinions on this field-made Heer camo set? It is being offered for a crazy low price so I am hoping that it isn't too good to be true, because otherwise I am going to be all over this. I have a feeling that the seller's price is a typo.

    I like it personally but this is outside my area of expertise.

    Thanks,
    Mo

    Any thoughts? It looks like it is made out of zeltbahn material.

    Hi Mo, I am not crazy about it. The problem with these, as I have said many times, is when was it made?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Should it have a breast eagle Ade? I thought these were used without insignia.

    Field made so it could have whatever you wanted.

    Looks a bit thin for zelt.
    When did the Bundes Republik border guard set up? I seem to remember seeing a parka type coat issued to this organisation in this pattern material. I only ask because the numbers 010158 could be a date of manufacture, i certainly can't recall seeing zelts with this numeric code on them.
    I'm not saying its impossible mind if you look at the attached, officers only

    mate if i were you i would stay away from this
    not only because this type of zelt is jused after the war by the swiss and so on
    and whitch ade pointed out when was it created
    if it was war time field made, just my point of thinking it should have NO markings in it or atleast an rbn number of the zelth but thats just me

    Swiss Zeltbahns have a distinctive green line which connects all parts of the green overprint together. I have outlined a few of these. Once you know what to look for, Swiss material is easy to spot. German M31 green splinter pattern camo does not feature these lines.

    Cheers, Ade.

    So, the zelt material is German WWII, but there is no way to prove when it was made? I quite like the set, but I will approach with with caution.

    What do you all think of the breast eagle?
