    Looks like a waffenrock, but what with the cuffes? J phil will tell you more
    It could be waffenrock with modifications to it. Branch indicated is Artillery. (red waffen Farbe)

    Any markings on the inside?

    It appears that it started life as a Waffenrock (dress tunic) which has been converted for field use, probably for a member of the Volkssturm, but it has been badged for a gefreiter with a signalers patch and shoulder straps for an artillery other ranks. It probably is good but the shoulder straps, the rank chevron and the signalers blitz patch have probably been added postwar. Close up pics of the insignia would be good to try and see when they were added. The eagle is a very nice first pattern (M34) type and might be original to the tunic, as this is the type it would have had when first used.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    I agree, today i had in my hands a heer waffenrock converted into field combat tunic.
    However the eagle and remaining insignia were not original to it.
    Cheers.

    Eagle looks to have been replaced. The chevron and signal blitz were both probably added at the same time -same thread and stitching- though when is hard to be certain, though post war is likely. The collar patches look originally machine applied and were probably applied to replace the original dress litzen when it was converted for field use. The shoulder straps are likely to be original and were probably added at the same time as the blitz and chevron.

    There are no markings that I can see on the inside. Just a terrible patch job haha.
