    Both look 100% to me. I've seen the red patch before but I can't remember what it is offhand. The second one appears to have been tailored also, very nice.

    Both are good genuine WWI tunics.

    The first one is what is called a model 1912 as evidenced by the double row of stitches 4 inches above the cuff bottoms it is unusual to find one dated 1918. It certainly appears to be original.
    The second one is what is commonly refered to as a model 1918. The single row of stitching above the cuff bottom identifies it as such. It also appears to be original.
    The other enlisted model is refered to as a model 1917 which has no stitches at the cuff.
    There are english made models that were issued to enlisted men also.
    When time permits I will photograph the different types of enlisted tunics and post them to the forum.
