Default Mint unissued.

Well if it's it not a mint or unissued sumpf 43 jacket then the reproducers have certainly upped their game! Slight variation in the pattern compaired to earlier examples that have been shown on the forum. One thing I always look for is that the button hole ends are bartacked which I always thought was a sign of authenticity of the use of a period machine but I'm not so sure now. Regards David.

Every stitch is authentic with proper size and RBNr info. Beautiful unissued example. Impossible to upgrade (unless you want a larger size).

Calm down, I didn't say it wasn't real, more of a general question about machined button holes now answered, makes me feel more happy about some of my jackets. Regards David.
