    Hi Emil, that was a bargaina and a half! Well done.

    These tunics came in both winter weight, made of wool, and summer issue made of cotton drill.

    The buttons were black/bronzed. Same as the cap insignia seen here.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Do you think the tunic is the summer or winter version?The seller stated it as canvas but Ive never seen light weight uniforms in a shade of green,All the ones Ive seen were in a sandy yellow color.Also If I were to resell it how much do you think It would be worth?
    Thanks

    This is the summer weight "cotton duck" tunic. They are found in color ranging from light tan to a pale green depending on the mfg. They seem to getting around $50 to $75 US on e-bay these days.
    Hope this help some.

    This is a great pick up for the price! I am almost positive that anything ww1 will be going up in price shortly. 100 years since the war is looming.
