    GM bag without zip but with only studs .
    a proof that germans were testing a lot of items before the approved edition

    Certainly fascinating! Never seen anything like it. I think the smock which looks like a M40 could be a converted M38. Generally converted M38s had narrower pocket flaps than the M40s, which is what I think I see. Certainly that smock looks newly issued, based on how sharp the folds around the collar are, as compared to the others. Based on the blue-gray steel buckles the photo is not likely to be an earlier than 1940. As pointed out by the boots as well. Interesting contrast in colors of the M38s on the right, which is probably due to wear/ fading.

    M36/38 Hybrid Smock

    Just got this photo in today. Take a look at the man 2nd from the left. I have never seen anything like it. Looks like a M38 smock with a M36 zipper system. Perhaps some type of transitional experiment which was rejected. Seems to be a 1941 ish jump school photo (notice the front lace boots).

    Interesting to seem 4 different smocks in the same early photo. The one fourth from the left seems to be an M40 (notice lower pocket) but cannot tell for sure.

    Has anyone ever seen a photo of a smock like this (second from left) before?
