From the few Pictures i do like the wrap but i would like to see a lot more detailed Pictures to confirm if this example is a good one.
This is a genuine Sonderbekleidung, but is it a real Sonderbekleidung from the Schwere Panzer Abteilung 502 ?
That's the question...

Thats a nice uniform, found on the Collectors guild site. His site is always filled with great pieces.
Thanks for the replies.The dealer on the site does state that in his opinion though genuine the 502's were added post war.
I agree, it is good.
If you do buy it, you could always remove the numerals. Provided there is no fading to the cloth, you could steam the pin holes closed with care.

Hello and thanks for all the replies. On consideration I have decided to pass on this one and wait for a less mucked about with example. Though the wrapper itself is a nice original, the breast eagle has been replaced, the 502 on the shoulder boards and the EK2 ribbon and spange though original appear to have been added post war......The search continues
