Default WH feldgrau Wrapper with green piping

New baby arrived in the collection .
Original sew on badges , the eagle eventually reapplied .
Green piping is unusual : Jäger , Skijäger or Brandenburg ?
All versions are possible ...
What do you think ?

Original wrapper of course. Any straight on photo of the tabs, and reverse of tab application?
Obviously it would be very rare and desirable if all original, but with eagle removed, who knows on rest either. Can easily make tabs with green piping and apply to tunic.
Wait to see more photos!

Some more pics ...
If you have it in your hands you can immediately feel the badges were
sitting on the jacket for more than 74 years !
The eagle is another story .
Of course you can play with a piece of green piping , but you'll never get
such a "natural" result .

Nice wrapper, thanks for sharing. I think the Green piping is for panzergrenadier and the jager badge is for a Panzerjager - Abteilung in that division. I have a wrapper grey/green like this with the jager badge that has numbered shoulder boards and the panzerjager unit on mine was attached to the 8th panzer division. It has pink piped black backed skulls and pink piped black shoulder boards.

That Jäger patch denotes light infantry and does not indicate Panzerjäger.

It is known and supported by period photos that some Schijäger wore Feldgrau wrappers. Perhaps this could be an original surviving example.
