    My opinion is that its a copy, but I am not that knowledgeable about such items. The cammo (oakleaf B?) does not match others I have seen or the small piece I own and the construction looks a bit loose to me and again does not match examples I have seen. Hopefully I am wrong and someone is not spending thier money on a copy.

    The camo looks like a plane tree 5/6 and this was made postwar from a zeltbahn or a reproduction zelt perhaps.
    Need to see the closeups of the clips.
    Real ones of these fetch $6000 for a beaten up one. This one is not real.

    i don't like it either. It looks like a modified and aged up S&M wholesale reproduction

    I'm not a fan of this Tarnbezug either. Without seeing a close up of the material, it's impossible to tell if it was made from a cut up Plaintree 5/6 zelt, a sin punishable by death, in my opinion, or SM made. The stitching looks a bit too shoddy for SM so I'm guessing there is one less plaintree zelt in the world.

    For reference here is my late war oak Tarnbezug.

    ah you are right mate. I just thought that it looked like a repro sm cover at first glance. But i am still learning!

    Las Vegas,

    How much is that abomination selling for?? I think the goping rate for a post war made tarnbezug from original cloth is between 400. & $600. (US). Yes, there is a market for them but you are right, it is being advertised as original pre Mai 1945. Someone is going to think they have a nice desirable plaintree cover when all they have is a put together.
