    Sorry ... MON (Department of National Defence) is existing since 1945. Till 1939 it was called MS Wojsk. (Deprtment of Military Affairs). It does look weird to me seeing pre-war breeches with post war stamps.

    Do most tunics have regimental numbers embroidered on the shoulders?

    Came across something very interesting and very unique. Seems to be a Polish Uniform (diplomatic) model 1926 for sale. Price 50,000 zlotych. Looking at the pictures, the uniform is in really great condition and the details are just amazing.

    What details should you look out for when trying to determine if a tunic is a original pre-war wz.36 or a post war wz.36 style tunic? Some can look very convincing with the addiction of pre-war insignia!

    Quality of fabric and tailoring, originality and correctness of any maker tags, buttons, fittings, rank insignia, etc. It is a very risky area of collecting for anyone without any hands on experience with genuine articles. Book knowledge is also essential, but not enough on its own.

    Hi Tony,

    Thanks for the reply, I guess I need stock up on some reference books and study pictures of originals.

    Heres a wonderful example, General Sucharski's uniform (Major at the time)

    Hi Emil,

    Reference information and good sharp photographs are important, but nothing beats hands on experience with genuine period uniforms to gain a real feel of whats good. The best way to pick out a counterfeit is to study the real thing. Of course, the difficult part is getting access to original uniforms to obtain that experience.

    Thanks for posting the pic. The collar tab area looks wrong. There should be no visible spillover of the collar behind the tabs. The tailoring on genuine pre-war uniforms, especially for higher officers, was impeccable and the tabs should exactly fit the collar profile. Maybe this is a restored tunic using parts of Sucharskis original - ??

    Regards,
    Tony
