Title Reversible camouflage snow suit, police issue
Nationality German
Period 1943
Sold

This is a rare survivor from the Russian front, marked inside the jacket on the snow side with 'PO43', the size mark 2 ('GRII') and various other issue numbers. Being a police uniform, the reverse side is reed green (faded) police cloth. There is an integral hood to the jacket. The field service buttons for the snow side are painted white.

There are minor tears to the jacket and trousers, the latter bearing an issue serial number differing in the 100s from the jacket's, but clearly these items have been together for a long time, given the matching fadedness and general condition of the cloth.

testimonials

[From a vendor, rather than a buyer]

I'm delighted that you are happy with the badge and I hope you can sell it to someone who will value owning it.

I tried to sell it on eBay but they won't accept Nazi items. I then contacted several dealers via a Google search who mostly offered me 40-50 after some haggling. Most of the other dealers tried to conceal its true value in their replies and also lacked manners which doesn't inspire confidence.

Ultimately it's about trust. I should think that most prospective sellers have done their own research and therefore know roughly what their item is worth. You were the only dealer who had the integrity to concede that my valuation was approximately correct and I respect your comment that you can't offer this as you need to make a profit. Your honest approach is greatly appreciated and I felt comfortable taking the risk in sending it to you.

Thank you for a smooth transaction
