Hey World Historia users,

I've had this coat for over 10 years now. Its pretty beat up from laying around in my closet, but i was wondering if anyone had any clues to its origins. I'm guessing east European, but there are no tags indicating anything, besides the dry cleaning tag with a couple english letters. I picked it up at a military surplus store along with a German style helmet and gasmask. Never inquired to the store's owners as to where it came from, as i was just a kid when i got them.


Anyway, here it is.

Can't really tell, but up close each button has two swords crossed, if that helps at all. Just curious where this came from and the history behind it. Hope this is in the right section, and thank you all for taking the time to view my post.

I say Czechoslovakia! One of my relatives had something similar to this and it was from Czechoslovakia.

It must be! I remember now the helmet was Czech, so it must have been in the same shipment as the coat. Thanks for your confirmation!
