    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    So the bright white stichting and the buttons with no wear are all original? The waist band with no wear, while the Jacke itself show heavy wear is all original? To me it looks like a new Jacke that has been treated with some sandpaper and bleeched.
    Even the threads around the worn patches look like they are new, at least not what I would expect from a salty Jacke thats been hanging somewhere dusty and dark for the last 70 years. Or has it been in the washing machine on 90 degrees, and have all the buttons been replaced?

    Obviously the buttons are replaced. I never commented on those as they are not the correct pattern and could not be considered original.

    Cheers, Ade.

    It looks an original non reversible splittertarn parka with many repairs and replaced pieces like the pocket flaps.

    Dear all,
    Thank you very much for your evalutations which are very helpfull. After all I consider some details looking rather new compared with the outside of the coat. What about the liner? It's seems to have no traces of wear at all. However me, I am not sure about and I refrained to get it.
