Waffen-SS M42 plane tree 3/4 camouflage smock

A stunning original Waffen-SS hand screened plane tree 3/4 smock or Tarnjacke in very good condition. The smock is in very good, lightly worn condition. The smock is a typical M42 type 2 smock with slanted pockets. The pockets are lined with field grey Drillich material with overprint pocket flaps. The pocket is lined with hand screened plane tree. The garment is typically sewn on the sides with a double needle seam and the rest finished with a single needle machine. The rayon drawstring is original to the piece and woven through machine sewn eyelets. All of the foliage loops are fully intact except for one corner which is loose. The sleeves are finished with hand screened 3/4 plane tree. The elastic on the sleeves and waist is non- functional and is partially removed. The elastic is tunneled in bright oak leaf spring material. The smock has one small damage on the spring side, underneath the sleeve at belt hight. The camouflage print is strong and full of contrast and the colours are vibrant. The print on this smock is always with a very slight green tone, this is not due to fading but a colour scheme we can see with all 3/4 overprint material. The 3/4 plane tree camouflage smock is hard to find compared to other plane tree variants. This combat smock would be a prime piece in any camouflage collection and would be very hard to upgrade.
