    Default 2 Summer Tunics

    Hi Everyone,

    I've been offered these 2nd style summer tunics. I do not know what to look for to spot fakes of these, or if these are even faked for that matter. I appreciate all of your evaluations to determine authenticity.

    Apologies in advance for the lack of detailed images.

    Thanks,
    Jake

    Interesting that they are two different versions of the summer white tunics, note the different collars/lapels. I don't think these are faked but there is a post war version which sometimes gets altered to WWII spec. These tend to not be very expensive as they are not combat tunics and are quite plain so are not so desirable to many collectors, which is perhaps why they are not often faked.
    Regards,

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Thanks guys. Two questions though...
    I'm a bit concerned about the panzer tunic shoulder boards. Shouldn't these be slip on? They look like loose sew in versions to me. Second, why would the kriegsmarine tunic have award loops only on the left breast? I really wish I had these tunics in hand for better evaluation. I'll contact the seller for more detailed images.

    Hi Jake, the basic tunics and breast eagles look good.

    The navy shoulder boards look OK too I think. But Navy is not really my thing.

    The Heer should boards are good but certainly do not belong to this tunic. The boards should be in bright silver, not dull field service type and the wear is not commensurate with the tunic.

    Shoulder Boards on these tunics are always a removable type, as these tunic needed cleaning after wear. They are either the button and tongue versions as seen on the Feldbluse, or the type with a "T" shaped end which slot into an open slit on the shoulder of the tunic.
