    Agreed, I have what looks like a field made zeltbahn jacket, and I'm still not sure whether I think it's period or not. That's the risk that you run. Is there provenance at all? I have to say though, that I kinda like the one that you are showing, based on how messed/used up it is. Here's mine for comparison:

    Trust me, there are reenactors out there that use original stuff to make hats and somthing like this because they have surpluse(i know of couple of people). If it cheap buy it if not, i would pass.

    If a soldaten would make one like yours i think stiching would have been a bit better, just think soldatens came from all walks of life.

    Thanx for the tip believe it or not I actually found this in South America as to cost that would be the only way I would add it to my collection if I can get it for real cheap I dont think there is any way to prove an item like this as truly real blacklight,burntest on thread and material even if that all checks out and its a real Zeltban and the buttons are good I will never be a 100% shur but it will make a hell of a conversation piece.

    The problem with items made from Zeltbahns is they are very difficult to say they are period made , this is known to be a practice amonst our faking ememies !!

    My personal suggestion,Do not buy it.
    1、The original fabric from tent.
    2、Bad workmanship
    3、Germans in that period won't design a pocket on the sleeve.Looks like a modern army combat uniform(ACU)
