    Default Heer Tropical DAK Tunic, Opinions wanted.

    I would like to get some thoughts/opinions as to the authenticity of this WW2 Heer DAK Tropical Tunic. It seems to be a standard tropical Kriegsmarine field blouse which was used by the Heer/Army. It has machine sewn army tropical tabs and appears to be a hand sewn army tropical bevo trapezoid breast eagle. It appears to be lightly used or unissued.
    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Would it not be uncommon for a standard tropical Kriegsmarine field blouse , used by the Heer/Army?
    Any thoughts on it's authenticity?

    KM tropical is not my thing, so i can't speak of originality but yes it's uncommon to find a KM tunic with Heer insignia.
    The way the Litzen are applied it doesn't look that it was wartime sewn.
    The tunic is dated much after the African campaign was over so why the Heer insignia? The supplies shortage was a big issue during the African campaign not after.
    Furthermore the tunic is in a mint/unissued condition so it had a Heer configuration but it was never used?
    I believe that the insignia were post war applied.
    Looking for the photo albums of Leutnant Emil Freitag, 3. / G.R. 377
