The tunic was actually found by Atlanta collector Russ Hamilton. There were a few crumbles left over that I did snag including an "extra" F/W cuff title in a pocket. At first finding it had no unit tab at all but quickly provided a home for a rune tab. Such was the lack of knowledge in the 'olden days'.

Thanks so much. Your interest in all of this across the span of decades is a source of happiness to us all.
We always wonder what these items would say if they could talk. Sometimes we can say a little about them for them. That is our responsibility to history.
Colleague, so well said. Those of us who have been searching now for more or less half a century and more always attempt to fill a void and a silence.
This site embodies the attempt to master this challenge, but it is a pretty flawed effort, not the least because those without collections and without our experience
really do not understand what some of us have endured and attempted in our search for the golden fleece and such. Many have only a casual interest, or,
their interest is openly malicious and they are jealous of serious collectors.
My thanks to you, Joe, for your many courtesies throughout the years of our acquaintance.
Hi Joe, I hope it is ok I uploaded the picture. If not, I'll promptly remove it from my post. And my apologies for not giving you credit, I want aware it was yours...I didn't know who's it was.
You owe us all an apology for your posts in this thread, and you owe me an apology for your uncivil behavior to me, as well as your shameless plagiarism of my posts
and knowledge which you use as a braggard. Moreover, you owe David Delich an apology for questioning his motives.

It is nothing new that tunics get restored and missing or incorrect insignia get replaced. Indeed, I own a tunic myself which has been altered at some point in time. It is no big deal.
Thanks for showing the tunic. I would love to own it!
