    Default waffen ss tunic dodgy at best

    Well first off the tunic is real . for the life of me i can not at this point find any trace of there ever been a army eagle .

    the shoulder boards are real . But just something not sitting right with me the way they are placed .. and the way they are both coming out like they have never been put in right ,

    now the collar tabs are not the norm german made sort . yet i can see i set like this on page 757 of the beaver book are these Foreign made ?? or out right Fakes . same with the cuff the eagle i think is just out right bad ,

    For the life of me i can not see any sign of any other sort of tabs been there before . and can not see any trace of a army eagle . is this a real tunic that some one just put crap back on ? the boards are both coming out the same way as each other a mirror image so to speak



    not one i would touch my self but there is some strange things going on my first thought was Foreign cuff and tabs

    This is a 100% Fake tab! The bolts width, stitching and border bullion are all perfect for a post war fake. In-fact this is a recently made fake collar tab.

    There are a lot of issues about this tunic. 1. The shoulder boards are not correct. They are post-war east german army as well as the tunic is. The pipets on them are the incorrect size and color for a SS Sturmbahnfuher and they should be black in color for the lower parts of the shoulder rank for the Waffen SS, Adolf Hitler. The sleeve eagle is a terrible reproduction. The cuff title is completely wrong for an officers Tunic and beyond that is a reproduction, a well known fake. The stitching on the back collar is a joke. The rank shoulder board is an exact reproduction that I myself have an example of. Well enough said.
