Heer M40 field tunic. The second pattern tunic which was issued to the Heer was designed with a grey green color and five buttons.
This tunic was period time modified by a tailor due to the personal taste of the owner. Soldiers preferred the more elegant M36 style featuring a dark green collar and dark green insignia. A dark green cloth was period time added above the grey M40 color. All modifications were executed period time and definitely prior to 1945.
