    Circa 1968 or 69 (I was still in high school) I bought a field grey Assault Gunner officer's wrap-around tunic from a veteran along with a mountain officer's cap (one of the buttons was SS marked) and several enlisted Navy and Coastal Artillery Schiffchen.

    The jacket was for a Leutnant with Panzer Grenadier green underlay shoulder boards and white piped standard Infantry officer's collar tabs and Panzer skulls on the lapels.

    I paid $10 for everything.

    My theory was that the original unit wore Infantry white and later was designated PZ Grenadier and boards were changed but not the tabs...maybe the field tailor didn't have them available. The skulls may have been a unit tradition or just a personal touch.

    Today no one would accept this configuration as original but I believe the jacket was worn like that.

    Ade-
    The jacket may be one of the oatmeal colored lightweight jackets worn in Southern Russia.
