WWII GERMAN SS M.44 PEA PATTERN JACKET.
An absolutely magnificent textbook example of the M.44 tunic in the herringbone twill material. The tunic has typical areas of fade and clear signs of combat use. At one time there was a zigzag machine applied eagle to the left arm, this has been removed at the time and the tunic was probably worn by a POW. Recently purchased by ourselves in the United States and is typical of examples that went to the States upon the backs of POW’s. The condition is as mentioned previously, combat used however not excessively worn with areas of fraying. There are some small areas of rust staining to the underside of the collar and one or two areas of small holing due to prolonged mounting upon a wire coat hanger. The colour of the camouflage is excellent in a light pinky tone and the overall look of the tunic would greatly compliment a combat type mannequin.
