Greetings. Although my main interest is SS uniforms and insignia, I have developed an interest in that of Third Reich Forestry (mostly because that is my profession).
I recently purchased and received a State Forestry tunic and would like your opinions on it. I am confident that it is authentic but looking at the stitching of the collar tabs (which looks "flimsy" compared to the SS stitching that I am more familiar with), I am concerned that the insignia may have been added at a later date.
Forestry tunics seem relatively rare and I hope to make some small contribution to that which is available for comparison. If anyone is aware of good reference books re Forestry unifoms/insignia I would appreciate your guidance. Thanks. Paul
