M43 PANZERGRENADIER TUNIC WITH KRIM SHIELD
Nice combat M43 factory made field tunic, with IMO all the insigna originally applied.
Eagle and collar tabs are machine stitched, shoulder straps are for a Panzergrenadier "Schütze". Shoulder straps are the late pattern type, the so called 44 type.
Tunic is shortened to the typical way of field jackets and fully lined with the grey/brown rayon. A couple of small tears are present.
Markings are still visible on the right chest, interesting to see this jacket was delivered in 1944.
On the left sleeve there is still attached a Krim shield. The shield is perfectly matching with the rest of the tunic, is hand sewn to it, and a shadow is visible under it. The shield is from unknown maker.
A nice untouched worn combat tunic. A scarce piece to find in this condition.
