Not sure on the tunic, but the eagle has been replaced, probably with a copy. Other signs that the tunic has been messed with, mismatched buttons. Also, unless there is proof that it was DAK, which for a luft trop tunic is unlikely, it is TROPICAL.
You can see clear signs of where another eagle used to be.
Whatever its just an opinion.
please, can you help me about this DAK tunic ?
MANY THANKS !
Hello, I think like vonbond, the eagle is a copy.
You can look at the photos of mine, find here:
luftwaffe tropical tunic. Please!! Is it original???? thank you
Can you put photos as those of my tunic? thanks.
I also agree with Jerry.
Eagle is certainly a re-applied one - whether or not it is original is another question. I'll leave that answer to guys who have a better understanding of LW tropical insignia than me.
Looks like a POW tunic brought back to life postwar somewhat. Not sure about the straps though. Jacket has seen some tough times, when is anyone's guess ? Do like the blue interior lining.
many thanks all
I would pass...
