    The eagle over the pocket and the large dagger only make this a variant from the usual. Understandable that those who only know a certain look would pass. I have numerous period photos of variations from regulation including of all things, an officer wearing a funky looking belt while parading in front of Hitler! Contrary to the belief of many inexperienced collectors, many soldiers flaunted regulations. Some units were more strict than others, but many got away with a lot. All said, I would have kept this tunic.

    IMO a pre-1941 high quality private purchased Officer tunic.
    Too bad you sent it back and didn't get a refund. You should have posted the tunic before to send it back...
