    It looks like a reanactor tunic to me IMO.

    It is a reenactor tunic and those are Swedish crowns. In my opinion, it really is a shame that people will ruin original WWII wool tunics to look German.

    Okay so we can agree its an original ww2 swedish tunic which has been converted to look like a Waffen SS tunic to try and deceive collectors or for like you have said to reenact, which is much more likely
    Thanks, Glen.

    Before atf, hessen and other repro dealers came on to the market. Reenactors would make or convert there own stuff. Swedish tunics are one of the stuff they would convert.
    To me this is not original ss tunic. beside the markings (hint Look at bottum pockets)

    Hi Glen, 35 years ago we used to convert these tunics for re-enactment. But this one has not even been converted. Just badly badged up. Very poor indeed.

    Cheers, Ade.

    It more like clown's tunic. Re-enactors use the tunics which is similar to original, but these is simple Swede, just with some sort of fake insignia
