M16 Friedensuniform. Very cool. I wonder if it is an issue one or a private purchase piece?

Hi, unfortunately I could not touch, feel or look.... but I must admit, I learned something, I went home and looked it up.... the white shoulder boards for the Bavarian Leib Regt were new to me!

Almost always the kunftige friedensuniform, were privately purchased . it was not provided by the Bekleidung Amt . It was authorized to all ranks inclusive privates and many purchased it .

I have examples of issued shoulder straps made for the Friedensuniform. I also have private purchase examples. Though both follow the regulations, their materials and construction are obviously different. At least 50% of my issue examples have been removed from uniforms. I think the same thing held true as it did for previous uniforms, that is, if one wanted a nicer, more custom fitting uniform than the issued one, they could purchase it privately.
