Description

When it comes down to any kind of German WWII uniform, the General related items are always the most popular/hardest things to find. This example of an early M32 overcoat is made of the highest quality, with all the gold buttons still attached, as well as the original early shoulder boards with interwoven gold/silver Russian cord. There is 1 large tombac rank pip in each board showing the rank of Generalleutnant (Lieutenant General.) The red lapel color is still very bright and vibrant, there are no major tears or repairs with only a few small moth nips here and there. The bottom of the jacket shows clear signs of being period worn. Originally the coat was named on the tailor tag inside the front pocket, as we usually see with items purchased from the German family it would be cut out by before selling to avoid any repercussions or evidence of relation to the soldier.

This is an untouched overcoat which is very hard to find due to the clothing shortages that affected Germany directly after the war, finding one with light wear and bright colors with all originally applied insignia just doesn’t happen often. The perfect piece to add to any collection!
