Got my hands on a BGS breadbag, unfortunately my "reproduction bread" doesn't fit

Maybe someone can recommend me a better substitute lol. In all seriousness, just what was usually kept in a breadbag? I've tried searching for information, but not found any.

Thanks for the closeup. Yup, looks like original/correct stitching on the badges to me. Just a little sloppier than I've usually seen. Maybe the worker was late for Oktoberfest and rushed through the last few badges?

Good find on the rank. This is the older type and is correct for your parka. The newer type has wider straps with plastic in them and they do not fit in the older shoulder loops like yours has.

Heh... bread picture is funny!

I'm rusty on my knowledge about the bread bags. Any markings inside that confirm it is BGS and not Polizei?

Gentlemen
It’s arrived and I’m again extremely pleased with it! It has never been washed and is virtually mint condition !
It even has a part label safety clipped into the hanger from original issue!
Here are some photos
Kind regards Chay
