Genuine and untouched M36 pattern Feldbluse for an army NCO. This jacket is a captured Dutch combat jacket period rebuilt to a M36 pattern jacket in 1941. The Feldbluse is complete with all of its period applied insignia. The jacket was upgraded to Unteroffizier at one point, by adding a silver tresse around the collar and putting white piped M36 pattern collar tabs for infantry on the collar instead of the generic types. The eagle was machine applied, being an upgraded embroidered model that soldiers could purchase at that time. Interesting to see is the the infantry shoulder boards match this tunic as the tresse is identical to the one on the collar. The M36 pattern boards show nice aging and patina and have removed chain stitched cyphers (per 1940 regulations). The liner of the tunic show light wear, but a large piece on the back was ripped out at one point (perhaps to use as bandage?). The liner shows German and Dutch markings and is dated 1941. Great untouched jacket with period applied insignia! I found this tunic a few weeks back in Germany, straight out of the woodwork!
