Default uniform offer Polizei or borderguard?

This is being offered as grentztruppen/Borderguards but isn't it Polizei-security?
comes with matching pants. Note stamp!

Nick,

The tunic and pants are Volkspolizei, not Grenztruppen. The tunic probably dates anywhere from the late 1970s to 1990. Looks like the date code in the breeches is "E", or 1980.

A nice set if you like Police stuff.

It looks unissued. Very common items here in Europe, wouldn't pay more than 40€ for it. Not sure about the availability in US though.
