I do know they counterfeit complete jackets like this,,,but this really looks good from the photos..
This also looks like something from a storage depot.. Well, looks like a really nice jacket you got there..

I'm late to the party, but I second Gaspare.

It appears to be 100% original and 100% unissued. Even the "S" hooks that hold the buttons in have no corrosion. It still has the loose threads from manufacture, indicating it was never issued and worn. Plus the HBT's rapidly show chafe wear in the neck area once they were issued and this one has virtually none from what I can tell. I know they make copies for reenactors, but this one appears 100% correct and I don't think the copies are that good.
