It is a west German tunic.
LEARN THE PATTERN OF THE ORIGINALS, THEN THE FAKES WILL BE APPARENT!
other ranks did not have gilt buttons.
One look post war. Hope you did not trade away too much. NH
That's not a WWII tropical tunic...sorry for the bad news. Hope you didn't trade a valuable item for this one...

Thank you for your kind responds. I traded it for 2 sherman tank track links. So the damage is not to bad luckily. I guess lesson learned for next time .
the lesson is, if you don't know, ask on here first,
its just an opinion.
Ooh! I'd rather have the Sherman track links. If this was traded to you as WWII I would request a return. NH
