    Default U boat officer's jacket?

    I recently ran across this, and I was wondering if it is authentic WWII. It looks in such good shape I was thinking it possibly is post war. I'm afraid I'm rather ignorant in this arena. Also, what rank is that shoulder board?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Hi, and welcome to the forum!

    You are correct, it is postwar and has been badged up.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Yep-definitely a post war coat, but if nothing else, it looks like it's pretty well made and a great looking coat!

    Thanks for the replies, guys. I suspected as much, but it is a sharp garment. And thanks for the welcome. Already learned a couple things poking around here. Thanks again for the help.
