    Hi. I'm currently at a military show in Maryland. I hope to get a few thoughts and opinions as to the authenticity of this tunic. It is a bit worn and faded. But the price is right if real. If at all possible. I would like to get some thoughts ASAP. Thanks

    If the price is right then it probable isn't

    Don't like the lining, don't like the litzen, GD cypher is a cast fake (if you've seen enough real ones you'll know why I said that) cannot comment on the rest of the tunic, not too keen on the armband either.

    just my opinion though ... I suppose 40 years could be classed as a good apprenticeship

    Thanks. I'm at the 43rd East Coast Rally. A lot of good stuff. But a lot of Reproductions.

    I also think that if it was actually what it is purported
    to be, the owner would not have let it become
    filthy dirty and covered in lint and
    dog hair.........

    I know we love our pets - but would you go out for dinner
    or to weddings and funerals without at least brushing
    your clothes off ?

    In other words, something that is potentially valuable
    would normally be taken care of, instead of being
    tossed on the ground. Especially an item from a
    dealer, who you'd expect would want to get
    top dollar - even from a repro.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Well, I have many tunics that have cat hair on them..but what bothers me, and I know little about German WW2 Items, is that the hole in the 3rd photo down ( near the edge of the photo) looks like it was cut, not mothed, and I find the mothing pattern in the 2nd photo to be a bit odd also.

    Just my thoughts
