    Hello sscrooge.

    I'd say look at the insignia of course, and how it's applied, but also the size stampings as well as the lining. Do you know what model tunic it is, i.e., M36, M39 M40, M43??? If it's got a Feldgendarmerie cuff title on it I would think that the shoulder strap should reflect that with piping in orange. That's another thing to look at too... the construction of the straps.

    Also, is this someone you know or have an established purchasing history with? Also, if the price is a bargain, most likely that will answer your question on originality.

    Look forward to seeing you photos ... I hope that are nice an sharp too.
    All the best,

    Also on the construction of the tunic itself, especially around the bottom of the arms, its where most people forget to look. And the lining, and the stitching, under the pocket flaps. Don't forget if it is a 36, it will have 3 belt hook ramps, but look for traces of an eagle on the breast pocket (although that doesn't automatically condemn it) and all of the above from Dave.

    Hope it turns out to be good for you

    Hi Ben, yes two caps, one is what sounds to be an m43 with skull insignia and two buttons also the peak underneath has thumbing marks with taking it off, the other is described as a side cap with insignia removed but an ss stamp inside, just hope its good stuff,,,

    Hi Dave, the sound of an "SS stamp inside" would worry me. But the pics will tell the story.

    Cheers, Ade.
