Greatcoat, M1907 Mantel: O/Rs, Imperial German Army
Single-breasted greatcoat of grey wool, featuring a turn-down collar, front fastening of six buttons, angled slash pockets with rectangular flaps at the waistline and button-tab cuffs. A half-belt is fitted to the rear of the waist, fastened by one button. Shoulder epaulettes, while once present, have been removed. Unlined.
Tied to the collar is a paper tag with the number '395' printed on it.
The M1907 Mantel replaced the earlier M1901 pattern previously used by being made of a lighter shade of grey and deleting the integral hood that was attached to rear of the deep collar.
