I never saw the field grey version. Very interesting to see the similarities.

Wow. Same cut of pieces for sure. Strange mix of cotton and wool is it? Never seen anything like that tunic before.

Trace of previous insignia?

Interesting that the camo piece has a six button front while the new find looks to be five buttons.

The jacket Meyer is wearing in the Normandy photo doesn't have the additional sleeve panels of subject piece or the book illustration piece.

Nice and interesting tunic!
I think this is one of the rarest SS tunics ..
Is it possible to give a value for this tunic?
