    By the way, regarding the eagle application. Was it done correctly? A friend told me that it was done in a wrong way. Was it supposed to be done in the zig zag stitching method?

    The eagle is a very very pale blue, almost white now and it would have been the "normal" colour.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Usually machine sewn along the top (upside down) and then folded over and either hand or machine finished, depending on date and manufacturer, though as shown in attached images is most typical for early tunics. Later then can be machine sewn all the way around or whatever. Still a nice job done but not correct for the tunic I think.

    Thanks for the info mate.
    Not correct because is an early tunic with eagle application (fully machine sewn) found on later tunic models right?

    Indeed Chris, it should be sewn like those I have shown IMHO.

    Thanks for the assistance buddy. I don't plan to change it though as i don't want to ruin the fabric with all those stitching holes.

    Chris, a superb example !.......I just love salty items, its been there and done it ! It would not take much time in the heat of the Western desert to become sun bleached, I had one exactly the same in the mid 1970's...I applied Officers insignia, it was easier to find in those days.....sold it for 40 ! Mind you I only paid 8 for it stripped ! AHHHHH, those were the days.....................(lost in thought)
    Prost ! Steve.

    Very nice mate. Probably been chemically bleached as well as sun faded to give it the real alterkampfer look, which was often done at the time, using anti gas tablets amongst other means.

    It needed a matching faded eagle like this one from my collection, though the application has been well done.
    Interesting tid bit of information regarding bleaching using gas tablets Jerry .
    I never realized that this practice took place
