THIRD REICH ARMY GENERALS OVERCOAT BELONGING TO GENERALMAJOR HENKE.
This is a superb quality WW2 army General overcoat which was produced by Holters of Berlin, this premier company produced uniforms for Adolf Hitler, Hermann Goring and other leaders and important personality's of the Reich. Field grey cloth body of very high quality with dark green collar and bright red General lapels. Complete with matching set of Generals shoulder straps, gold and silver bullion on red backing for the rank of Generalmajor. The overcoat is complete with all gold general buttons. The reverse side of the coat is fitted with matching field grey belt with two gilt buttons. The interior of the coat is lined in a very high quality gray silk lining, the interior pocket has a tailors label for Holters of Berlin , it also printed with the original owners name, G.Henke and with the date 19.9.1943. The collar of the coat would originally had a 2nd Holters cloth label but that is now missing, probably worn away with age. From research Henke was promoted to Generalmajor on the 1,2.43 when he was 66 years old, he was a General of Infantry, I am sure with carful research much more can be found out about him, he would certainly make an interesting research project.
