It is a Feldbluse 1933 modified 1943, not 42, as pockets flaps are straight...on the 42 type pockets flaps are still scalloped.
Both Hoheitsabzeichen and Litzen are reapplied.
It would be hard to reapply the Hoheitsabzeichen with a sewing machine as it would be thru the lining, but IMO the Litzen could be restored better...it was accepted in Frankfurt in 1944
An original Feldbluse...if it's not expensive, why not...

I think the asking price is too high now that I have done a little research. I feel that 1,400 US is a bit steep. Thoughts? Even a PM would be helpful, I know discussing price is somewhat discouraged here and I respect that.
I got it all squared away. Price adjusted and some field gear thrown in. First feldbluse in my collection, I also some how ended up with a Vet bring back K98k all matching... Jeeze. Santa was good to me this year boyz.
