GERMAN WORLD WAR II KRIEGSMARINE WAIST LENGTH FIELD TUNIC

The photograph above is showing a complete front side view of this two pocket, brown wool, waist length, World War II Kriegsmarine fatigue coat.

Worn by both officers and enlisted personnel, the brown wool, waist length fatigue tunic with hidden plastic buttons was a particular favorite of U-Boot personnel. The actual tunic shown here was originally manufactured in 1942, and remains in excellent condition, without major moth nips, rips, tears or other significant visual deficiencies. The rank of the wearer of this coat was Maat (Mate) Fourth Class.

Below is a photograph showing the manufacturing marks that are stamped in ink on this tunic's interior lining. Easy to read, if held in the light at the right angle, are the numbers "42", denoting its year of manufacture.

Below is a photograph showing the two (2) brown colored plastic buttons, together with their companion button holes, that are found at the very bottom of this coat to close it at the waist. These two buttons, together with the sleeve and shoulder board buttons are the only ones visible when it is worn.




Below is a photograph showing an enlarged view of the breast eagle found on this tunic. Easy to see is the fact that the eagle has been permanently machine sewn into position by a loop stitch process commonly used in Germany that leaves no edge of the eagle exposed to fraying.


The photo below is showing an enlarged view of the underside of one (1) of the coat's two (2) pocket flaps. Easily seen is the fact that it is underlined with a coarse weave fabric to give the button hole extra wear protection.


Below is a photo showing an enlarged view of the number "42" as it appears stamped in ink on the interior lining of this item.




PROVENANCE AND CONDITION OF ARTIFACTS

Unless stated elsewhere in this description, this item is completely original to the pre May 1945 period. Moreover, it is in suitable condition to be displayed, handled or otherwise included in any collection of original World War II German militaria without alteration or treatment of any kind.
 
Unfortunately, most of the items that are being presented under the listing of Kriegsmarine have been acquired by RARE MILITARIA from various sources over a period in excess of forty (40) years. Consequently, in most instances, it is virtually impossible at this point for our firm to be able to provide you with any reliable level of provenance vis a vis the actual original owner of this uniform and any accessories. We are prepared, nevertheless, to guarantee that the components used in their manufacture, as well as the procedures in the assembly, fully comport with all standards employed by German industry before May 1945.

Pricing includes shipping and insurance to U.S. locations only. International buyers, please contact us with your location for actual shipping related costs.
