    IMO its a fake, the breast eagle doesent look right and too white for a 70 year old tunic,

    Obviously post war tunic, as you said Glen, look at the collar tabs, fake SS sleeve eagle on the breast, pith helmet eagle on the visor (I'd like to see better pics of the this eagle as it might be good, though when it's with the rest it is probably also fake). The brassard is on the wrong arm, but that is largely irrelevant.

    Open collar also is a dead give away I believe.

    As has been said before, a Bundeswehr uniform onto which someone has slapped some fake Third Reich insignia.

    The sleeve shield has nothing to do with foreign volunteers and is probably original to the tunic, as it is a Bundeswehr unit insigne. (It's for the Heimatschutzkommando [HSchKdo] 18.)

    The two "bars" transplanted onto the lapel are Bundeswehr shoulder board rank insignia; 1 bar = Gefreiter.

    Hello Glenn-
    As the others have said, this is a post war Bundeswehr tunic. May I suggest you invest in some reference material before considering purchasing items. This uniform does not make any sense with the armband on the incorrect sleeve, a fake SS cap eagle on the breast and a fake Kreigsmarine pith helmet eagle on the visor cap. What is the seller representing this ensemble is? Knowledge is a treasure that will save you from mistakes in the future.
