This uniform, recently obtained in Germany, is constructed of Forestry green tricot/elastique wool and consists of an M-43 field cap, service tunic/trousers and greatcoat. The MINT field cap, cut in same pattern as the mountain cap, is made of Forestry green wool with a double flap secured by two pebbled aluminum buttons. The interior is lined in Forestry green artificial silk and size stamped “57” in white. The cap is complete with an aluminum, short-winged political pattern cap eagle. The tunic, approximate size 38S, features dark green wool collar, two upper and two lower pockets with pocket flaps, turn-back cuffs and pebbled aluminum buttons.  The collar patches and shoulder straps have been removed from the tunic, however an undated photograph of the original owner which is included with the grouping, shows him wearing the rank of an Oberforstmeister.  The interior of the tunic is lined in Forestry green artificial silk complete with the original tailor’s label marked, “UNIFORMHAUS CARL WEYERS, Köln”. Exterior and interior of tunic show no wear or soiling with no rips or tears and no moth damage and grades Near MINT/MINT. The straight trousers are constructed of Forestry green doeskin wool without piping, and are complete with brace buttons and an adjuster belt on the left side [right adjuster buckle appears to never have been attached, but is inside the right front trouser pocket]. Trousers show no wear to wool and no moth damage. The double-breast, military style greatcoat, constructed of Forestry green tricot/elastique wool is complete with dark green wool collar piped in aluminum twisted cording, two rows of five dark green Bakelite buttons and two slanted pocket flaps on the lower front. Inside the left pocket is a sword/dagger hanger. The reverse of the coat features a half-belt of Forestry green cloth secured by one dark green Bakelite button. The coat features shoulder straps constructed of braided green cord edged in aluminum braid with four silver acorns. The interior of the greatcoat is lined in gray-green artificial silk complete with the original tailor’s label marked, “Blitz KLEIN-UMSTADT”.  Klein-Umstadt is located  approximately 20 km East of Darmstadt.
