    No. This is a Swedish Jacket altered to look a bit like a German one. Im sure the shoulder straps and collar tabs are post war. Im not sure about the eagle, it dosnt look quiet right to me though.

    Hello,

    You have pictured a Swedish tunic with east German collar tabs and shoulder boards. The eagle appears to be a well worn original officers bullion eagle.

    Thanks for the info. So someone stuck an original breast eagle on this to make it look German?

    Agree spiced up Swedeish didn't even use all period inignia it was a old trick to convert to German style and often use real buttons (German) and insignia I had one in the early 80's done this way with partial fake SS insignia looked pretty convencing but in the end just junk. timothy
