Waffen-SS M42 plane tree 1/2 camouflage smock


A stunning original Waffen-SS hand screened plane tree 1/2 smock or Tarnjacke in very good, untouched condition. The smock is in very good, lightly worn and untouched(!) condition. The smock is a typical M42 type 1 smock with straight pockets. The pockets are lined with field grey Drillich material with overprint pocket flaps. The pocket is lined with 1/2 plane tree. The garment is typically sewn on the sides with a double needle chainstitched seam and the rest finished with a single needle machine. The rayon drawstring is original to the piece and woven through handsewn holes. All of the foliage loops are present although there are two loose parts. The sleeves are finished with hand screened 1/2 plane tree. The elastic on the sleeves is no longer functional and have never been removed or replaced. The elastic is tunneled in late war plane tree overprint and has never been opened. The smock has a few small holes but there are no repairs. The camouflage print is strong and full of contrast with the colours very vibrant. This untouched combat smock would be a prime piece in any camouflage collection and would be very hard to upgrade.
