Spectacularly Rare, German Model 38 SS Smock in Palm Tree Camouflage- This incredible smock is in the ultra rare palm tree camouflage pattern. It is reversible with a brown autumn pattern and a green summer pattern. The colors remain fairly vibrant with minor fading throughout. There are a few very small holes, mostly found on the back of the neck. Also seen are a few minor frays with separated threads, we have pictured these. This is the pattern that has no integral pockets, instead having long, vertical slits with flaps that allowed the wearer access to the underlying uniform pockets. There is minor wear at the openings of these slits. The elastic bands at the waist and cuffs are still present but stretched. The tie string for the closure is an original replacement. On the green side, at the bottom reverse are ink stamps indicating that this example was captured by the Russians. It is a size medium. Overall, a fine, highly collectible example of a scarcely seen smock!
