    These SS Oberstrumbannführer Boards are off a friends of mine tunic. I have my opinions on them, but he would like other opinions. The tunic itself is a late war tailor made dutch fabric. I'm trying to get him to let me post photos of it

    Thanks Gentleman, that's what I had thought. I'm hoping to post the tunic soon. There is just and interesting note to the boards and tunic. The tunic was one of several from a vet's son. The tunic were basically untouched since there bring back in 1945. Two officers tunic had boards and the rank collar tab removed by the officer and were found in the pockets(not unusual). So my question is would it still be concerned to be a restored tunic? If an original thread was used to put back in the board buttons and rank collar tab?? I know at times this topic of resewing tabs is very controversial in nature, or just leave the whole tunic as found partially stripped.

    Most collectors would say yes, that would be called "A restored Tunic". This because it can most likely not be proven these are the original pieces of cloth that are belonging to the uniform.

    The amount of money these old pieces are "worth", makes collectors only want to pay top Euros for untouched specimens. This because of resell reasons. a questionable item is very hard to sell compared to untouched pieces.

    The second a needle and thread starts to reattach something it is considered "restored" or "partial restored".

    Maybe others have different thoughts around this.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    I'd consider it a rebadged tunic, which in my opinion is much better than a restored one. however, as stated priory, that is near impossible to prove.
