MINT and unissued Luftwaffe sumpftarn Fallschirmjäger jump smock (knochensack). Late war construction in Swamp-Pattern colors printed on thick water and windproof canvas cloth. Complete with original factory applied breast eagle in zig-zag stitching. The eagle itself is a very rare Fallschirmjäger type eagle, embroidered on camouflage (in this case Splittertarn) colors, and worth a small fortune by itself! The jacket has its 4 original plastic zippers, all functional and maker marked by Ri-Ri. One is missing the leather pull strap. All 5 black glass buttons are original sewn and remain present. There are a few minor damages in the garment, all pictured in the slideshow. The jacket has a large size and is perfect for a mannequin. It is maker and size marked inside as followed: IIB (=size), XII 44 (= December 1944), R.B.Nr. 0/1305/0249 (= Manufacturer code). The jacket was brought back as a souvenir after the war to the United States and the name of the American soldier’s is still present; Romie Berryman, Ashland, KS (Kansas USA). A very nice and unissued smock in untouched condition!
