And obviously the two holes for the belt ramps. Interior is again textbook with a mixture of HBT and cotton/rayon lining. Just above the size stampings you can clearly see the remains of the SS BW stamp. Again this is a nice used combat tunic belonging to a SS-Oberscharfuhrer who served in a Premier SS div "Hitlerjugend" and judging by his rank and Russian front ribbon was almost certainly a former member of the "Lebstandarte Adolf Hitler". this is a superb tunic and certainly hard to better.
