Default Feldbluse M43 in Feldgrau '44

Hello friends,
here it is one of the last Feldbluse m43 producted before the end of the war; it's a unissued Feldbluse in Felgrau '44 color cloth in almost pristine conditions. It has the breast eagle originally sewn through the lining (as it was normal in the last part of the war) and an athypical size markings: note the central one stamped with reversed digit (69 instead of 96). I haven't seen this RBNr before in other tunics...
Please let me know what you think.
Alex

Could you please show more details like the underside of the collar and a collar tab as well as the cuff with the slit.

Very nice tunic with all insignia genuine applied
Question regarding the size: -does it "69" ..? It makes it XS size. Never seen smaller.

Nice tunic. The only slight blemishes I see are a re-stitched button below the size stampings and one collar tab applied a little longer than the other, both forgivable.

That's the question. But in the heading of the thread Alex placed "98". Didn't note it earlier.

Great tunic!

Thank you guys, yes, chest size is 96 cm and not, obviously, 69. Maybe a printing error in the production run. What i like for the most in this tunic, is the Feldgrau 44 color, a really beauty.
