    Yes it is an original german WWII greatcoat
    If the shoulderstraps buttons are original to the coat, it means the latter belonged to an Infanterist who served within the 1st company of an Infanterieregimenter (white piping). As the shoulderstraps are sew-in examples, it means that the greatcoat was meant for the walking-out dress (the field greatcoat has removable shoulderstraps).
    Nice example even if the left french cuff is a bit loose. It may have been shortened as well, as the marking for the full lenght is 131 cm and it looks smaller in the pics (could be an optical illusion of course)...this greatcoat started its life with a dark green collar ?
    it looks like that perhaps the collar has been replaced...(hard to say from the pics...but...)
