    Wow, what a nice response to wake up to! Here's the uniform that I'd like this to adorn, a tunic that I got as totally stripped, actually had evidence of being a Der Spiess that had been upgraded to officer! I've since done my best to restore it(please don't judge my shoulderboard sewing too harshly!).

    Nice tunic! I think the EK will suit the salty nature of the other awards and the tunic in general very well. I look forward to seeing the final result!

    Thank you! I'm really, really pleased with it. It's nice when you can find an example of something that you like 100%, not just something in your price range or available(though this is all three). I think it makes a huge difference on the uniform, and really "finishes" the display for me, I'm super happy about this.
