DAK Tunic? Authentic or Repro

Article about: Hi, I'm thinking of placing a bid on this DAK Tunic. I am a bit shaky on on the identification of these tropical/DAK tunics. Any honest opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Hi JPhilip! I assume that the distance between the top button and the break of the collar is off. I'm glad I posted this, and/or the seller pulled it from the auction site. It was tempting. I don't have any more photos...for discussion.
    As far as the Litzens go, I assume that the originals, conform and melt into the material of the collar?
    Weren't most of the Breast Eagles removed from most uniforms/tunics?

    Here are 2 examples of originally applied Litzen.
    The first picture is from a second pattern tunic and the tab was sewn fully with a sewing machine.
    The second photo is from a 3rd pattern tunic and the tab was sewn at the sides with a machine whilst the top and bottom by hand.
