It doesn't look favorable. Fictitious rb number the rayon material doesn't look quite right the barvaria film studio is still in business today.

Fake for sure. The Bavarian movie studio tag is interesting.

Luftwaffe M-44s are quite rare, so rare that I don't recall seeing a wartime photo of one being worn. It begs the question "why would you have a copy of one made?" (for a movie or any other reenactment).

Repro M44 jacket : the BAVARIA Film studio tag has been added for the collector's market , to look more believable !
Like "Statni Film" repro stamping ...

Superb Gustav! The Feldgrau one was certainly a great score at a prior SoS.
