This beautiful leather jacket comes directly from the family property. With photo evidence (repro)!

The leather jacket was probably purchased privately. With manufacturer label Hela Herren Moden. The leather is still nice and supple. With signs of use and small defects. Inner lining without damage or moth holes. On the right shoulder the seam has come undone a bit. The Kriegsmarine buttons were probably replaced after the war. The shoulder boards have been removed.
