Nice. Almost a Ted Danson look-alike. Now watch a pair of mt. green tabs show up amazingly though it appears this photo was pre-issue of wrappers with mt. green piped tabs. Any additional where-when-who information?

Why not SP Artillery or anti-tank, red or pink piping and part of GBJ Division?

I have no clue if SP Artillery was ever part of any mountain division

There were likely Panzerjaeger in some mt. units as I used to have a single pink-piped strap for the Windbluse.

The collar tab piping seems to be lighter than the shoulder strap piping? Would that be pink tabs but red straps? Steve

This is a crazy question: Is it just different shades of the same color piping? or is it possible one cor for tbs and another cor for straps?

Correction: one color for the tabs (pink or red) and another color for the straps (green)?
