The interesting sleeve patch .
George told me , that he had seen a photo of this type of tunic being worn on the U-Bahn trains in Berlin as the East Germans wanted to prevent people from leaving via the trains to West- Berlin .

..and the shoulder board . Interesting part here is that the button of the board is a srew type into a base plate inside the shirt and not the normal DDR string tie-down type .

Interior of the cap is marked : MdI , Size 57 , Maker 1856 , and Y for year 1988 .
This agrees with the Berlin newspaper page left in the cap that is dated 6./7.Aug.1988; --just a year and a couple of month before the
'Wende' in Oct.1989 !

Backside of buckle and belt catch end .
The electronics are very well done .
However , the plastic belt seems to be to weak to hold up for long time use !
Overall , an interesting item !
