I think this green is for Motorcycle units or Panzer Grenadier depending on the date of issue.
The lack of cyphers makes it indeterminable without a date.

Thank you for the Quick reply Landser! the Tunic is dated April 1940.If the ribbon bar that came on the tunic is original to the piece the owner was a veteran of the Great War as well.

From what I understand this date was to early to be Panzer Grenadiers do you concur with motor cycle troops?

Yes, motorcycle troops up to 1941.

Nice tunic!
