WWII German Luftwaffe Paratrooper Smock-This is a fourth model example in the tan and water pattern (sumpfmuster). This is what collectors call the "hard edge" pattern. The material is extremely soft, of a lighter weight and in excellent condition. There is minor discoloration and wear from use, but no damage. There are four "stitches" just under the collar which is where the manufacturer paper tag once resided. All of the blue bakelite buttons are present. The zippers are stainless steel and function as intended. Each is marked "Rapid" and has a grey leather pull tab. The snaps at the hem are all intact and marked "PRYM" The reverse has the pistol pocket with small green bakelite buttons. The snaps at the cuffs are identical to those at the hem for the leg closure. They all function as intended. The breast eagle is machine embroidered in white over green. It is very neatly zigzag stitched onto the smock. The interior is unlined and uses off white cloth for pocket reinforcements etc. The draw string is in place and secured underneath a strip of brown cloth. The same cloth is used for the pistol pocket reinforcement. The upper left of the interior is RBNr'd and dated 8/44. It is size marked 1A (small short but of course meant to be worn over clothing so will fit a mannequin, no sweat). Overall excellent! 

Please note that any "accessories" (i.e. medals, badges, belts etc.) are NOT included unless stated in description!
