    An interesting tunic.

    Early cut but with a none regulation amount of buttons.

    Cheers, Ade.

    It is indeed a RW era tunic. Just double check no insignia has ever been removed.

    It doesn't appear to have had a Heer chest eagle/ collar insignia removed etc here are some close ups of the tabs and arm eagle.

    regards Paul

    Even if it had a chest eagle once, does not alone label it as a post45 creation.

    Interesting piece. Now we all wait for the mannequin all dressed up!

    I know its not a regulation SS tunic for the purist collectors however i have seen period photos of senior SS officers with 8 buttoned RW tunics, It was fairly common within the WH for Waffenrocks and RW tunics to be utilised/ converted to create a smarter walking out or dress tunic etc.
