    Never seen a tunic like that, but that dosn't mean that it's fake or real :P

    If it's real, I think it's some kind of a summer tunic =)

    Is the material called "garbine", as stated it was a summer weight tunic, but this example looks like no other tunic I have seen before......the lack of pockets at the top confuses me......and the fact the lower pockets seem to have no top flap confuses me more.........somebody with more knowledge is bound to be able to provide more info.....also I thought the Germans removed the buttons inside the collar at a point early in the war

    Even though the Germans bought out different versions of the tunic at stages during the war to cut down on materials, this looks too " casual" for me

    To me this tunic looks fine in that it is a "drill" tunic and could have been issued to a Scharfuhrer in Handschar as the badges suggest.

    The insignia looks okay to me too, but was it added at the time and how much is the item?

    I do not like the way that the insignia has been applied as it looks a bit shoddy but it does look original, so if you could have it as 100% original (but not pre 1945 original) would you still be happy with it..............

    Also, I would take a closer look at the rank tab as I would regard this as an unusual rank for this unit at this time.

    I had an unissued example of a drill tunic like this about ten years ago. It had a factory applied eagle and the buttons were removable. One on the Beaver SS books has a chapter on these. He shows some period photos and a couple of examples. One that has had upper pockets and lower pocket flaps added.

    The NCO's tresse looks odd. Aren't they supposed to go all the way around the collar?

    Dean...if Imperial traditions were kept going, no, as is on the tunic....just on the corners on drill/work tunics. I am not into TR items, but I do like this jacket !
    Prost ! Steve.
