ALL of the insignia has been replaced!
Looks to have been cut down as well removing the part below the bottom pockets , i know this was sometimes done by soldiers serving in France as a fashion
Isnt the lining completely wrong? And the wool material dosnt look right to me either. Where are the belt hooks and shell dressing pocket? Surely this isnt an authentic jacket at all.
I will go with Douglas on this one. My 1st impression was that the wool look strange. I will also agree on the lining unless someone can correct me if wrong. Wrong liner construction, material, vent holes missing, belt hooks missing....
Thank you very much guys! i will let it go, i was not to convinced with the collar tabs and eagle breast, i hadn't noticed the belt hooks missing, so, not for me, thanks again!
Thanks kradman! did not know about they cut down that the part below the bottom pockets was sometimes cut down by soldiers serving in france! that's why i love this forum i always learn new things!
