    Hi all!

    I am wondering if this battle dress is authentic. I understand this should be a post war production dress and in my opinion most likely a put together. But I am not certain of the authenticity in general. See images.
    Many thanks in advance!

    What do you mean with: authenticity in general? If the patches are genuine?
    All in all a lot of questions , you should have asked yourself before buying this jacket (I know what it was listed for).
    And when is a battledress authentic? If a dealer tells you it is?
    Are you a Dutch collector?

    Just want to know if the BD and patches are real and correct for a late 1945 configuration. I am fine with a slightly post-war BD and I was confident that it was by the listing. If you are able to help I would appreciate it.
