    Nice set and beret.

    I think 1958 is not the date but a code for something else. I think the date is 1/Y . 1 = 1st quarter of the year and Y = a certain year. There is a list that shows the year each letter designates somewhere online but I forget where.

    Great stuff!

    There's two versions of this uniform. The later type, which Gilles shows, is setup for arm rank and was made in 1988 uniform and 1985 vest (1958 on label = factory code, I think). The earlier type has no rank provisions at all. Instead, soldiers sometimes sewed rank directly to the shoulders. See the last picture Gilles posted for a great example of that.

    There are several models of the para vest. There is also a pretty good STURM copy out there, so beware. As far as I know there never were Strichtarn berets. Only orange wool.

    Here is a picture of my genuine experimental (pre production) vest:

    I had trouble identifying this vest (it is used, BTW) so I took it to the DDR experts over at the Wehrmacht Awards forum, where it was confirmed. Pretty cool considering I bought it fairly cheap not knowing what exactly it was!
