    Default Tropical sleeve eagle: good?

    Hi guys! I would be glad if you experts could help me out with this eagle.
    I think itīs a good one but are not sure. And I also would be glad if you cold tell me if this is a tunic removed example. It is sold as that and also looks like it but what is your opinion? Iīm very grateful for help. Thanks for looking.

    Gday,
    Whilst I am not in a position to validate your tropical eagle I can give you this for comparison.
    I believe mine to be OK.

    Both are fine.

    Tunic removed? Possible, or equally one which has been cut down off the backing. But it does look like there are some stitch marks.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I am with the others on this one being good. Now as far as tunic removed I would be careful buying into that. These eagles are a little easier to come by and someone could very easily make some holes with modern means to make it look tunic removed and demand a higher price. With something tunic removed, especially something that was worn in the field, I always look at where the wear should be. If there is none, or it is in a strange location I tend to keep my money in my pocket. Just my way of looking at things.

    Regards,

    Jeff

    Thanks a lot all of you for your kind help
    The price is about the same as other dealers wants for an unissued.
    Thereīs one more tropical eagle for sale there also. It shows some more wear then the first one. Maybe that one is more believable to be a tunic removed eagle? Or what do you think? Price is the same.. Thank you in advance.

    A sound reasoning I endorse, but it may be of use to know that in the mid '80s a lot of sahariana-style tropical WSS tunic was found in Brindisi (a town on the Italian south-eastern coast ), very likely bound to the Balkan front just on the other side of the Adriatic Sea. Most tunics have had the lower pockets removed (for a prospective use as heavy-weight shirts to be tucked into trousers?), all but a few ones had been deprived of the eagle insignia. So removed tropical WSS sleeve eagles, albeit less common than the majority in mint unissued condition, are no surprise to me.
