    Looks fine to me. These were all hand embroidered. Some were done much better than others. Likewise with the hand stitching to the tunic, some people were more skilled than others.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Tom, usually they were done over a cardboard former, called an "Unterlagen". But these were not exactly standardised and the finer details were really down to the individuals skill.

    Cheers, Ade.

    so in a sense eagles could look practically complete opposites to each other im amazed the the germans didn't invent some form of a machine to do it instead so they would look smarter

    Not trying to argue with anyone but in my opinion the breast eagle has been replaced, probably wartime.
    Other than that it is a very nice tunic.
    I would like to see the inside of the cap which is very nice.
    Thanks

    Hi Tom, machine embroidered and machine woven eagles (collectively known to most collectors as "Bevo" even if not actually made by that Company) were produced. But you have to remember that hand crafted badges were held in very high regard and were all private purchase and so were more expensive to buy. You have to try and get yourself into the 1930/40's mindset. Long apprentiships and craftsmanship were things which were thought to show the best of German workmanship. "FB" has touched upon this theme many times over the years on the forum.

    Cheers, Ade.

    you are right in that hand crafted would claim a premium as should be better quality than the standard bevo but if a hand crafted one is screwed up so that it is completly different such as in the head would they still have brougt it as they would be wearing constantly and i would think they would want ot look their best
