Default SS Camouflage Tunic, authentic?

Hello,

i have no experience in camouflage tunics. Did this have a chance to be authentic?


Best regards

Delano

I like the American bdu buttons! LOL
Btw I picked up a second pink smock with the Russian stamps cut out of the pocket liner and the hole now badly fraying after the long term storage rodent pea odor got removed by thorough washing...
This process done on all of them after these were discovered in long forgotten bails in the east somewhere. They remain intriguing for sure!

Btw too bad the Wallonie shield lacks the tall "A"....

What is the ratio of the ones that actually have the stamps vs the ones where the pocket has been cut out? I have seen several of these over the decades, and still never been able to examine the stamps for myself. They all had long cut-out sections in the pocket.

Read the thread about them
It’s stupid and fun at the same time just like the fake pinks

Your paranoia regarding the pink smocks is reaching an unhealthy obsessive level to where you have to mention it in most of your posts having nothing to do with that topic.. My guess is your greatest fear is they will be proven authentic and you will be spanked worse then some of your recent boo boos

The same stamps (not cut out) have been found in a Palm Smock, a Plantree smock and a pair if SS camo trousers
