Default Amoeba camo anorak: Opinions

Hi,

Recently the mailman dropped this one at my house: an early NVA AMOEBA -camo overcoat/anorak.
It's also written like "amöbentarn" , "amoebentarn" etc. The hood seems to be disappeared one time, there is a small loop for a string added on the collar.
Nowadays this camo seems to be very rare... The fabric is a thin kind of cotton and the camoprint is translucent on the inside.

What is the official name of this print and what do you think of this overcoat?
Comments welcome!!

Peter.

It looks very similar to one that I have. Mine has more of collar on it though.

Well, from what i can see, this smock looks original, but it has been very heavily altered and tailored into its current form to give it a more fitted look, rather than the standard sack of potatoes look.....
I am not so sure the hood is missing, rather than it has been used in the re-tailoring of the the smock forming the the upper front chest, maybe.

Personally, I am not completely convinced these alterations took place during the period these were in service with the NVA.

Of course the effect is that its value will be vastly reduced and some collectors wii back away from it, still an interesting piece though.

Thank you all Gentlemen for your nice comments

Rare camo it is ; Personally I think it has been re-tailord, customized ones for a better look, maybe a fashionable officer?

What would be a reasonable price when selling it? Need to raise some funds for a new purchase......oh damn, it never ends
