    Hello forum,

    I would appreciate any thoughts and expertise on this old coat. Appears correct for the era but I am unsure on the markings. They differ from many others I have seen lately. Completely new to looking at German items to add to the WWII collection, I have yet to even arm myself with the appropriate literature and the amount of forgeries out there is astounding! still, the combined knowledge on this forum equals any book

    It is original. Not military but RAD issue. Note the brown collar.

    The markings are to RAD units it was issued to.

    You can research these are find out what parts of Germany this coat travelled to.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks again Ade, I ended up wining this interesting bit of German history! I have no idea of it's value but I think I did ok on this one. It is my hope to assemble a complete RAD uniform - A great example to help explain the Nazi totalitarianism.

    I will update with better pics when I have it in hand.

    Now on the lookout for original RAD items appropriate to this style of coat!

    Cheers!
