1956 /57; after which it was superseded by the ' filzlaus' combat uniform, tho' the splittertarn was worn until the mid 60's or beyond.

To check out values look on Ebayde and search ' fruhe Bundeswehr splittertarn '.

Craig H,

These jackets are often found well worn, patched and faded. As RJKG said, they were reissued and worn into the 60's. If you were looking for a resale value in North America forget looking at ebay.de. They sell for a lot less in North America than they do in Germany.

Regards,

Gordon

Looks like it was made by RKK in December 1956, though it's a guess as the label is so faded. Not that it really matters what the label says as the variant, condition, and size are what determines value. I'd say this is "medium" condition relative to what I usually see on eBay. It's largely intact (buttons, snaps, D rings, etc) and repairs are minimal. Fading is about average.

I'd call this a "solid" example. Very good examples go for upwards of $200+ on German eBay, so this one is probably in the $80 neighborhood on US eBay. Your mileage may vary
