    Yup, that's what I figured. So really, any date is legitimate. I'm guessing the Border Guard put in an order for X of this size, Y of that size, Z of this size, etc. and that is what the military delivered. They would be selecting for size and possibly condition, not date. Only us collectors are that fussy Wink

    Nice tanker jacket! I assume there are special trousers as well?

    Here is a pic of soldiers with the tanker jacket, they seem to have specific pants without leg pocket flaps.But I also saw soldiers
    wearing this jacket with the normal KAZ 03 pants,maybe Philip knows more.

    Usually not my collection-focus, but I thought it could be interesting to show
    the small differences on Austrian canteens, covers and cups.

    Nice! I've only ever seen the two camouflage types you have + the medic cover. My guess is that's all there is to collect?

    The canteen design seems to have been pretty stable for the 1960s and 1970s. I've only had a few and haven't noticed any differences in details.

    Yes, the medic version with the leather strap is missing in this pic. I also guess
    there are only those 3 types of the camo covers.

    Wow... what a surprising acquisition! I totally didn't see that coming Very Happy Very Happy

    Seriously, that is a beautiful shirt. I look forward to getting it's brother in my hands.

    Now I just wish I could find a 1958 dated example...

    Well, I thought It could be wise to get one too....
    And finally I have something to put the spare old rank insignias on. Wink
    Guess to find examples from 1958 is as hard as finding matching pants....

    Since it took me almost 15 years to find the pants, I hope you're wrong Smile
