Rare, Outstanding SS-VT / Waffen-SS 1st Pattern “Blurred Edge” (Rauchtarn) Smock
Here is a simply outstanding example of an earlier first pattern SS Camouflage smock in the Rauchtarn (blurred edge) design. The colors are still vibrant and show moderate use and fading. The seams, pocket treatment, cuff ends etc are the way most of these smocks appear–this one in my view is a classic example. There are a couple of seemingly period field repairs to the pocket tops and bottoms, which would often tear during use. If I collected smocks, I would jump on this one. COA accompanies.
