Waffen-SS M42 field tunic - SS-BW


Description
Waffen-SS, EM- (ie. NCO-) pattern, period-altered M42- (ie. 43-) model field-tunic ('Feldbluse') having its period-sewn arm-eagle attached. The tunic comes in a very nice (and only minimally used- i.e. worn-) condition. It shows a (standard-pattern-, greyish-silver-coloured-) machine- (ie. 'BeVo'-) woven arm-eagle period-attached (attached by means of 'zig-zag'-stitching). The tunic has a bluish-grey-coloured 'silk-like'-type lining and bears a clearly present 'SS-BW' (ie. 'SS-Bekleidungswerke') and/or size ink-stamp. The tunic retains all its (period-attached) buttons but has been period altered ie. re-tailored. 
 
The tunic shows 'pleaded-pockets' and has regrettably both its lower pockets removed (only the flaps remain): moreover, has the tunic been shortened (something that can easily be noticed by studying the inner bandage-package-pouch). The piece shows 3-holes (for belt-hook attachment) instead of the usually encountered 2-holes and retains its fully remaining woolen 'nap': it shows some minimal usage and/or wear and bears a few moth-holes. The tunic is medium-sized and has a waist of 92 cms.
