    I did some research and found out that the tunic in question is actually post-war. It is virtually identical to the TR-era model, except that the latter's backside has a different cut, and there are belt support buttons. Below are pictures of the backsides of both post-war and TR-era tunics.

    Well done Joel. That "cut" of the jacket at the back is one key indicators of period of manufacture.

    Thanks! War time forestry tunics apparently saw continued use in the BRD. The newer cut was introduced in 1949, but some war time tunics were worn all the way till late 1950's. Dagger hangers were reintroduced around 1949 also, and were used until about 1965.
