    The tabs and eagle are perfectly original Flemish made originals. I think the cuff title may also be a known and accepted foreign made original. Its important to be aware of the foreign made insignia BEFORE one makes sweeping pronouncements that something is fake...

    Some collectors who specialize in this area should pipe up before this tunic is branded a fake. Is it for sale? How much?

    Flemish made originals? and you think the cuff title may be an accepted foreign made original? Can you tell me what has brought you to those conclusions? I'm curious as to what foreign country was making Adolf Hitler Cuff titles which were worn exclusively by the Fuhrer Begleit Battalion and the The 1st SS Division Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler, which had no foreign made cuff titles among them. So, I am just curious as to what brought you to this conclusion?

    Its very simple. Cuff Titles of WWII of the SS were NOT made of polyester. By looking at the cuff title, and the Collar Insignia you can easily tell that they are made from a 50/50 poly blend. This has a very distinct look to it. If anyone has SOLDAT Volume 11, this is clearly displayed and illustrated on page 206, as well as Bill Shea's book on SS Insignia of 1925 through 1945. In addition the Flemish volunteers did NOT serve in the 1st SS Division, Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler. I'm not here to dash someones hopes for a tunic here, I am simply pointing out the obvious and years of experience and what has been collected in years of literature. Again, this is my opinion and at least I have explained my reasons
