    Default WWII or later

    Hello,

    New here, I recently got this coat at a militaria auction, it was described as an WWII Oberleutnant zur See U-Boat coat.

    I bought it to wear but I have had some comments stating it may actually be a " an old (70s-80s) West German "Wasserschutzpolizei" jacket, which can be roughly translated as river patrol police, responsible for security and policing of inland waterways".

    My coat came with the shoulder-boards pictured, in place on the shoulders, and the back of the buttons are marked "Overhoff & Cie".

    I know Overhoff made buttons , buckles and such for the Third Reich but were they still in operation in the 1970-80's? If I knew I might be able to narrow the dates disown.


    thanks,

    Rob

    And still in business today

    I don't think that the jacket you show is WW2 era. I think the later description you gave is more correct
