    Default Luftwaffe Flight Tunic markings?

    Hello everyone!

    I am looking at purchasing a Luftwaffe flight tunic with some very unusual markings inside. They are done in a very sloppy manner, and simply don't look right in my opinion. I am considering purchasing from SV militaria, but I find it strange that a nearly identical tunic is for sale at Oakleaf Militaria (Luftwaffe enlisted four pocket service tunic for flight/Fallschirmjger) . They are identical right down to the sloppy markings, and they are exactly the same size! This is either a very unique coincident, or something beyond my knowledge. If anyone has info regarding the maker please respond. Below are the pictures of the similar markings from both sites. Any help is appreciated!!!

    That's got to be the same tunic, It's even the same background. Are the two shops linked in any way?
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I was thinking the same thing, but the shops are not linked. Very strange...

    Probably on consignment to both shops IMHO as it is the same tunic, you can see the flaw in the right hand shoulder strap on both of them besides the identical markings.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Same tunic. Often items get traded between dealers. Both are trustworthy. But SV does not update his site very often. He is a part time dealer and run the store more as a hobby venture.

    The markings are Luftwaffe unit markings for Prague-Gbell airfield.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Stupid me!! I was so busy looking at the pictures i did'nt see your link! I have to say that overall the fantastic condition of this with the very unusual makers marks would make me want to steer well clear of it.It may be a good rare example but i would prefer to buy a known maker variant.Just my honest opinion.It does look the part though?
