Mountain police 4 pocket field tunic - 1943

Description

Extremely rare field tunic issued to Gebirgspolizei troops. Wachtmeister rank. A typical lightweight police tunic which is "Po 1943" dated and depot marked. It comes with a machine-embroidered "Bromberg" area sleeve eagle attached by machine. Furthermore, there is a machine-attached Edelweiss sleeve badge. A fine hand-embroidered example which held an eagle once. The eagle was removed to provide room for the Edelweiss.

All buttons complete and attached with the original splints. 
Originally machine-attached collar tabs. NCO type and matching with the shoulder boards. Interestingly, there look to be EM tabs underneath since there is a second - smaller size - seam visible. 

Shoulder boards attached to loops and buttons. Wachtmeister. Some stains.

Silk lining. Signs of wear.

Good condition 2. Medium size.
