Default Polizei Raincoat

Hi Folks:

I couldn't pass this up.....always remembered the German Polizei out in the bad weather wearing these raincoats.....just missing the slip-on shoulder boards

Depends on the State.
Is there a Maker marked?
Most possible that it was made by a Maker for "His" State Police.

maker label is visible in photo - BeKa made for several states, so not help. The shoulderboard attachments themselves eliminate several states. Not 100% sure for ID, but material remind me of NRW raincoats, that i have seen. The shoulderboards on the NRW coats i have seen were pointed and same rubberised material as the coat with pinned rank pips.

I agree with Klaus that the tip off here is the size of the shoulder board loops. Wide ones, like this, narrows down the possibilities. I would say NRW is the best (only?) possibility.

Klaus, interesting what you say about the pips being painted. I'm pretty sure I have some of the straps in my collection somewhere, but I don't recall them being painted. I'll dig around and see if I can find something to show. I know the soft gray cloth ones for the gray cloth rain/top coat I have were not painted.

Steve,

i said, that the NRW shoulderboards themselves were pointed and the pips were pinned (on), not painted! I have never seen painted pips either, they are always metal colour.
