M40 Tropenbluse, 1st lot of production.

Hello friends,
here my last bought, a real m40 tropical tunic marked B40 belonged to the very first lot of production run made for the Afrikakorps. My goal would be to reapply a real tropical insigna, so i ask your help to find an original collar patches.
Hope you like it.
Alex

Re: M40 Tropenbluse, 1st lot of production.

Hello Alex
Nice original tunic, did it come with the officer insignia attached?
If so, are you sure it's post war applied?...I'm guessing it is by the look of your photos

If your wanting tropical patches and a tropical breast eagle, email me at

ruralpos@northnet.com.au

I have a set for sale

Re: M40 Tropenbluse, 1st lot of production.

Guys are you sure this tunic is original? I am seeing at least 2 features that i don't like and that i haven't seen before on a first pattern tunic.

Agree with Chris  - the breast pocket shape as well as the material the tunic is made from, the stamp font and the field dressing pouch material all make me concerned on this one.

Check out the stamp. It's a match.
