Hans Mühl clothing?

Post by Skurwiel » 23 Aug 2019 06:43

Hi. Do you have any information about Hans Mühl and his clothing? I have found a leather coat named after him and I don't know if it's real or fake. Help me please.
Help guys, only 6h left and I'm gonna buy it. I really need to know how to identify it.
PS I don't have pictures yet so could you guys tell me how to recognize if the coat could be authentical antique?

Sorry..... Never heard of the guy..... Without pictures impossible to give opinion. Most "military" used leather coats would have provisions for shoulder boards and a dagger/sword hanger slot in the pocket.

95% of leather coats were/are civilian so be cautious.

With that lining, without provision for shoulder boards or a dagger slot in the pocket.... appears to be a civilian
leather coat. Could be 3rd Reich period but no way of knowing really. Size/fit has nothing to do with me....
If you're happy with it is really all that matters.

I'll take better pics but even if it may be civilian, I'm still proud of it. :)
