    Does the stamp say Kostumfabrik ? That really should answer your question. Most likely a theatre tunic

    Funny, for films? Not WWII period, IMO.

    The bogus Totenkopf stamp should be an incredibly huge red flag. The only thing I could find on Erben was a possible link to a company that makes Fasching costumes. One popular costume is Pippi Longstockings. I would call this a fantasy Pippitarnungjacke. NH

    The stamp tells it all...

    This should be moved to the Wehrmacht forum btw.

    Was that Totenkopf stamp even used in the TR? On anything I know it doesn't belong on a Heer tunic, but is it based on a real ink stamp?

    It's a fake fantasy stamp, often seen for sale on eBay. About a year ago, someone was taking 1920s German banknotes and stamping them with this same mark, runes, etc, then listing them as 'Genuine SS Money.' A shame, as the notes were otherwise in great condition.

    Thanks for the reply, I figured it was a fantasy stamp, and I've seen it on other fakes before.
    It's always sad when people destroy collectables to make them TR or SS, so many cigarette cases ruined with Ruins etc.
