    Default WW2 Leather Overcoat?

    I bought this awhile ago from this group that buys old warehouses full of ww2 stuff and they claim this coat was captured from a german officer while the germans were retreating through the balkans and spent 60 years in a warehouse however i am not fully positive it is ww2 so i would love some opinions

    inside view


    Back view of it


    weird thing i dont get here is why is there a button on only 1 side instead of both


    this is the buttonhole on the side with the button and its still sealed shut


    heres the skirt at the bottom it can button up


    heres the makers mark on the inside pocket


    heres the fasteners that keep the coat shut the first 2 are labeled prymo original


    heres the buttons on the sleeve i also noticed the pattern on them looks slightly like a swastika

    This looks more Stasi than Nazi to me.

    I think that you should have a look on ebay Deutschland where you will find a lot of these coats.
    A similar type of coat was used during the period but the leather used was a much heavier grade, and your makers label is also modern.
    I hope that you did not pay much for this for the reasons listed above.

    Just a civilian leather coat, is all. I've had several of these that I've worn over the years myself that I bought new. Nice coat.
