Hello Pilot......I am about to walk out the door. I will be back later. But I wanted to find out some things about that Hartmann jacket. When I get back I will go into it more.

What I would like to know is about the waist buckles of the Hartmann. Were you the one who sells the buckles? I do not remember who is the person who has a few of those buckles.

I had...sold them in a glimpse.
But there is a French artisan reproducing/literally, hand crafting these Hartmann jackets as well as the Reichs Defence jackets...( IMHO the best repros money can buy) he has them for sale in a set with D-rings...as a kind of repair kit.
If you are willing to invest ;););), you may contact them.

Greetings I am home now, I could not see the images very well on my cell phone. But now on my 60 inch screen I can see that they are post WW2 copies or reproductions.

The French artisan is not very modern...they just have an Email address.
PM me and I will give you these data.
As mentioned earlier...be prepared to invest...surely a lot of spitting when reading about the prices and delivery time..;););).
Also, they dont take PP but only Bank wire transfer via IBAN...

looks a bit like what Noble House are offering as their "H-219 Uhu" jacket...
Sorry, please check/compare details...Objectively, a detailed comparison with an original and the French artisan’s repro speaks for itself...Plus a while back, I bought an UHU from NH...what a joke ( far away from the WW2 original, leather with a chemical stench, blousy sizing, lousy hardware/craftsmanship)...Posted it here a few months back.
Did not even sell it, since embarrassing (as a collector looking for max. authenticity), gave it to a charity organization collecting used clothes.

Sorry Pilot, I do not know how to PM someone. I am very new to a forum and navigating it etc. I would be interested in the buckles if I can afford them. So you are saying these are ww2 period? Is it proper to give you my email address? I don't know if members can do that.
