    There's a new Spiess in the youtube garrison, so 150 push-ups in a row, 15 stadium laps and no leave for the next month for all those who don't type " d3rNooB Spi3ss " in the YT search bar......Verstanden ?

    Any thoughts on the differences in button style between the two tuniics I posted? That was the only real difference I noticed between the two other than the eagle.

    Would you avoid the tunic based on the fact it has an incorrect eagle? I'm new to buyingtunics so I don't know if post war alterations such as that are common place or not.

    Four holes buttons made of white cardboard is ok
    It's impossible to say if the eagle was wartime or postwar applied, unless nylon thread was used
    Officers were supposed to use the eagle seen on the artillery Waffenrock that opened this thread, but they often used embroidered ones...
    Thanks

    Both the one on "your" tunic and the one JPhilip posted are fine if credibly applied.
    I have examples of both, originally period applied, on Waffenrocks in my collection.

    From the Curley and Stewart Waffenrock book and then a couple of mine that albeit are private purchase. They are handy on display while mine with the other correct styles are currently put away. Note the captions that bullion (on the left of second photo) is more appropriate for officer and look at the right hand side for NCO/enlisted styles as well as the first photo.
