    As stated - an original period example. In addition to replaced Litzen, it appears the buttons have been replaced. They are either period subdued finish or immediate post war examples. NH

    Thanks for the respond all! So this feldbluse is pre-war 1933 but modified to a 1940?
    The buttons are marked with "K Q 39", so should be ww2 original.
    The replaced litzen are original and made for the m40 jacket?

    Im looking for shoulder straps but I can't find a m40 one, mainly m36 and m43, I don't think it is wise to put a m43 on the jacket?

    Thanks!

    Hello,
    No, the Feldbluse is the type produced in 1940 based on the pattern adopted in 1933.
    Yes, if marked K Q 39" the buttons should be WWII
    Yes the Litzen looks like original and can be applied to this Feldbluse (looks like faded 1938 generic Litzen)
    Concerning the shoulderstraps, you can put whatever you want as far as EMs are concerned (depends of the period), and of any branch of service as Litzen are generic...
    Thanks

    Hello,
    I would recommend you to find new shoulderstraps as the first pair might be original but is privately purchased with a not sought after Waffenfarbe for Signals units, both other pairs are fake IMO...
    Thanks
