Question German lightweight tunic Heer, Ostfront

Dear all,

May I show you this private purchased/depot made lightweight tunic of an "Oberfeld" please? All the time it was a strong wish of me to get a Wehrmacht tunic. Now I have done, it’s on hold so the anticipation ist much greater for me. I am enjoying it very much :) :)

I have chosen consciously Espenlaub Militaria as my provider so I think it’s authenticity is not in question, istn’t it?

According to my sources those kind of tunic was used originally at the Eastern Front, but could be seen on all frontlines in summer 1943/44. I would be very pleased if you had some more information about this tunic, e.g. hints about the time period of its production, occasions about its use?

All comments are wellcome.

With best wishes
