    Shouldn't the collar tabs also be green ? matching the colour on the shoulder broads ?

    Shoulder boards don't have to match up necessarily - they can be generic - but the insignia looks re-applied. NH

    it did say that it had lots of field repairs. What is the over all consensus of this uniform???

    Looks good to me inside shots of it if they have them could tell all but going on pictures at hand looks like original M-43 tunic for GJ anymore most insignia is reapplied but that looks ok and period belt buckle and awards I like also. timothy

    Hello'

    It appears to me that all of the insignia has been replaced. The insignia does not show the same wear as the tunic. All of the insignia looks original but I would like to see some better and more shots of the shoulder boards..ie opened up, side by side, front and back off the tunic.

    Obviously the button hole ribbons are post war additions but as far as I can tell the tunic is good. The question is when the insignia was put on.

    Well gents, The M-43 tunic sold today. It went for 750.00. A little much for the amount of unknowns with this. And no I didn't buy it.
