Default SA 4 Taschenrock or not?

Hi,
I got this jacket the other day. It seems, that the jacket is a stripped SA Jacket from its color and lining. The buttons are redone with black thread and it seems that the shoulder boards on both sides were presentcat one time. They are now resown. No labels at all. Maybe it was used for something after the war?
What are your opinions?
Thanks Dirk

The color as presented in these photos appears more like that of a Political Leader rather than SA.

I would still say political leader based on the color. One other thing to look for--although not present on every tunic, is there a provision for a dagger clip under the left hip pocket flap? If so, it's not PL. Early SA tunics varied in color quite a bit prior to the standardization outlined in the RZM manuals, but this doesn't look like a very early example, judging by the form.

As i said i think the jacket was used for the theater which might explain the alternations.
