    Hitler Youth greatcoat (HJ Mantel) with belt and early Assmann HJ buckle

    My new HJ Wintercoat.

    I received the coat together with the early "Assmann" buckle and a really nice "Croupon" belt.

    I hope the coat is completely without doubt.

    Thanks to you...
    on a german side there was some doubts about the coat. The pockets look strange....
    And then they show a link to a flakhelfer coat with
    I have no doubts that my coat is 100% original.

    I've seen your "old" and your "new" coat"
    Congratulation... both are beauties.

    I dont think that there was shoulder straps or a triangle on my coat. Is it sure that on greatcoats from similar type shoulder straps and triangle was used?

    Great greatcoat, let the doubts from the German side be doubts.
    The greatcoat looks as the drawings in the January 15, 1934 booklet:
    Bekleidung und Ausrüstung der HJ. Look at the pockets!

    According to the description (on page 57) it is mentioned that shoulder-straps were
    to be sewn in. I may have a photo where no shoulder-straps are being worn (cannot
    find one yet). The straps were anyway included in plate 7 from: Die Uniformen der HJ
    from 1933.

    When you have my "Handbook of the HJ" then you can find some there:
    page 309 some HJ leaders with leaders shoulder-straps;
    page 357 Motor-HJ member inspected by Hühnlein with the light-brown shoulder-straps;
    page 446 during the war, the coat with black shouder-straps;
    page 571 part of an early photograph with (difficult visible) light-brown shoulder-straps.
    The full photo is shown here.


    All other photographs with great-coats I have, all do show the light-brown shoulder-straps.
