My new SA Generals Brown Shirt for review
Please feel free to post your thoughts on this shirt.
I really like it but I,m also a idiot sometimes when it comes to this stuff!.
I,m certain that every is genuine but not sure if its put together recently or of the period etc.
Also any info on the tinnie would be appreciated.
Inside on the waste line its marked Konig.

I rotated the medal for you..I like the collar tabs...wait for other opinions.
It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!

I'D go with Bob on this one the back of the collar tab seems very sloppy done not something that would have been done during TR
Thankyou for your comments Bob.
Amazing stuff you have in your collection.
It was brought throught a good dealer but he wasn,t sure if it was a put together piece etc.
My thoughts are a good dealer should do his research before selling an item. I hope you receive a refund as undoubtedly, it was expensive.

Bravo for Bob's fine items. Always a pleasure to see.
Here is the descriptor from the site which has this item listed for sale. It appears to me that he is upfront with what he is selling. He does not claim the shirt is original and expresses his own concerns on the site.
I do not know if it was put together by a collector or if it was assembled during the period, I am always skeptical of Generals items. This one looks like it may have been assembled during the period but I am going to price it for the parts since I am not sure. The shirt is in fine condition and just shows normal age and wear. The tabs are of general rank with one pip with gold highlights and a black background. The shoulder board is on a black background and has a silver and gold twisted cold braid in fine condition also. The arm band matches and looks nice on the arm. What I really like is the name written on the waist, I think it is "Konig", this may make a good research project. There is also a super cool pin on the pocket, I am sure this is a rare piece also and I am leaving it on."
The listed price is $1850 USD.
