    Would appreciate any opinions on the following tunic. Translation if possible. I think the insignia is added on, no stitching underneath the collar......almost like they are glued on. So real or fake, a keeper or tosser? Thanks in advance.

    Thank you Taka-San, does the insignia look good.......chevron, collar boards?

    You' re welcome, Visor-san.

    Looks fine from the photo, but might need taken from underneath the collar.

    Cheers!

    No stitching under collar, so I figure added on.....but original. Thank you again Taka-San.

    Here is some pics of underneath the collar. The stitching picture is from the chevron.

    Oops! Just realized that I haven't read your description properly.

    Can tell the collar tabs are slightly off.

    Is the white tag glued on as well?

    In my opinion all insignia added post war. Period applied insignias were never glued on
