    Better photo's would help.
    About prices: you must find out for yourself!

    And by the way: it is not a tunic, but a brownshirt.

    Is it worth $300 or should I keep looking?

    Bob Coleman would be the guy to ask on one of these shirts. You could try dropping him a PM.

    Bob Coleman certainly is the best person to ask, however I can say with some confidence that it is an original SA shirt of late manufacture (1939 or after). I have one very similar. I imagine $300 is possibly a fair price but not a bargain and you will have to go to some trouble and expense to find the missing pieces. Many people on this forum advise against buying stripped uniforms, but of course its up to you and if you like it thats fine.

    From the images, this appears to be a period original brown shirt that at one time had the 1939 pattern insignia. I personally do not like complete rebuilt uniforms but to each his own.
