    Name the plane tree

    I picked this nasty thing up last year. But nobody knows it's name...it's like a stray mutt. I need to wash it and get the chalk marks off.

    The sleeves are small parts are 5/6, but the pattern of body is un-named. It's not lateral. The cap on page 141 of Mike Beaver's first book is the same stuff. I suspect he called it "early plane tree" as there wasn't a number or enough visible to classify it otherwise. There are no numbers, blocks or cut lines so it's not intended for zeltbahns. It is hand screened, not roller printed. It lacks the larger dark patches characteristic of the other plane trees- the spots are similar in size to 1/2.
    So. "Spotty plane tree"? "Plane Tree dot"?

    I also found one original photo from Kursk, that appears to be this on an M38/40 smock.

    The smock on the guy at left appears to be the same, but it's hard to be 100%.

        100% with 5/6 sections (pocket flaps etc.) and a not so common pattern, congrats!

            BTW, that's a joke, I hope?

              I think this is one of a h-ll well preserved and desireable smock! Really juicy!

                    Agreed , this is a very nice pullover using a print seldom seen in this cut !
                    Thanks for showing it , and it goes to show the manner in which older fabric was used , next out of the blue on day it would be great to see a palm in this cut !!!

                      Owen, Arek,
                      actually I have seen more surviving polyspot M42s than M40s, I have seen type one covers and caps, never a type two cover though.

                      The pattern appeared first around 1941, later than palm.

                      Cheers
