Real or Fake Kriegsmarine leather overcoat?


24thinfantry

Recommended Posts

A gentleman has this jacket which he claims is an original WWII Kriegsmarine overcoat. The tag inside reads SchmidtReinhardt. The buttons appear to be the pebbled type used on German uniforms but I do not know much about Third Reich uniforms. I was wondering if this overcoat is original or a reproduction. The guy wants $100. I would greatly appreciate any help. I don't want to make a stupid mistake by being swindled if its fake.  Thanks again for all the help!

I think this is a postwar Police leather jacket.  It looks like an oval department patch might have been removed from the left shoulder in your photo.

And Yellow Anchor Buttons, if not Field Grey/Grey painted Anchor Buttons. Do believe only the Black single breasted U-Boot versions acquired by the SS Troops of the 1st and 12th SS Panzer Divisions switched out the anchor buttons for Silver Pebbled Buttons.
