M40 Luftwaffe paratrooper splinter camouflage converted step-in smock
A rare unissued M1940 Luftwaffe paratrooper splinter camouflage converted step-in smock. The smock retains strong and vibrant colors. With only some very light storage marks, the crisp colors are fully intact. All zippers present and functioning. Manufactured by the well known firm « RAPID » and retaining their factory sewn light brown and black leather pull tabs. Snaps are present as well and function perfectly. The snaps along the bottom for buttoning the smock around each individual leg are absent, the others are all marked « PRYM6 ». Internal wind cuffs are all present and complete as well. Smock retains its original factory produced early green backed Luftwaffe eagle and factory sewn to the smock. The eagle is really nicely machine zig-zag stitched and war time done. The use of « Grünmeliert » material scraps was used when the smock was converted and features some nice sections in all green fabric. Smock is nicely ink stamped with the maker « Rudolph, Hubert & Cie » and dated « 12.40 », size is « 2A ». A very rare and highly desirable smock with strong vibrant colors and original factory stitched eagle is extremely difficult difficult to find in this unissued condition. Choice.
