    Cant see the insignia clearly enough to comment, but the tunic is not a WWII original, probably post war as militarymania has said.

    Not original. The cut is wrong to the collar and cuffs.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The ribbon bar also appears to have a lot of it's ribbons incorrectly positioned.

    The blue WWII 'Long Service' awards should be close to last place - or at least
    further to the right - especially if there is a Friedrich August medal ribbon in
    the center. These are a German State equivalent to a WWI EKII and it
    should be next to the WWII EKII. In most cases there would also
    be a Hindenberg Cross ribbon for WWI service.

    The ribbon bar is probably 'made-up' as well................

    militarymania: The weight of the tunic felt heavy and the fabric is one I have not reviewed before. Regards: Larry
