They look absolutely good, but Im not sure that they are police. Color is army to me, but I could be wrong.

To be honest I have not seen a police item with RBN number, but I am a civil police guy so not sure about militarized units and issued contact clothing.

Regards,
Bill Unland

I agree the pants are Heer (army) with besides the RBNr markings in place also the army Munich "M" Depot stamp and army color...
The pants suspender buttons on the other hand are identical to resin buttons used on Polizei combat tunics (cuff closure and first aid pouch closure)...
but to me the pants are still army!

Standard Heer Marco. A nice set nevertheless. I had a worn pair relatively faded to a POL green shade which is a common aspect of this fabric/dye.

Agree with the resin buttons you speak of, I have the same examples on a POL tunic as well.

Correct trousers would match the tunic, see the below thread which is best illustrated example I can think of (thanks Ron!)

hi firends
I have two questions now:
did the Polizei use RBNr code?
did the Polizei utilze the M Depot?

I know that the Rbnr code was used from 1943 onwards and replaced the makers name and address (or company logo) on government contract uniforms, so this code should not be specific of the army....

RBN'r started showing up in latter polizei clothing, found in both caps and tunics, if you search back you will find some posted.

As I understand it, the police had there own clothing depots, they would not utilize the Heer depots.

Hi guys
I want to resume this thread because I saw on selling a nice Police tunic with exactly the same color of my trousers.
So they are definitely police trousers.
Marco
