Hi Remy & welcome to the Forum.

Really need better photos than this to make a proper judgement. Insignia has been re-applied post war, may be fake too, again need better pics. Jacket looks like it is a Sud Front 4th pattern with the neck enclosure hook. It maybe is ok. Shoulder straps are fakes from these photos...

take some more better photos to be sure

cheers
Tim

Re: DAK Feldbluse M43 ?

Welcome aboard.
Tunic looks ok but more pics would be better.
Agree about reapplied insignia. The Litzen are originals. They are those with the golden stripes found in mint, unissued condition. The eagle seems ok too but a better photo would be more helpful.
No idea about the straps. Picture is in big distance.

Re: DAK Feldbluse M43 ?

Well i would say:
Tunic 500 - 600 euros
Litzen 70 - 80
Eagle: 150 because is not in good shape and frayed at the edges from sewing.

Re: DAK Feldbluse M43 ?

Thanks for added photos. Jacket is a standard 4th pattern Sud Front tunic, nothing to do with the DAK. Straps are fake. Tabs and eagle are ok but not special. Agree will all what Chris has said.

cheers

Re: DAK Feldbluse M43 ?

Luger please post some photos of the straps while being flat open. I am curious to see the underlay of the tongues.

Re: DAK Feldbluse M43 ?

Thats the problem the backing is not correct nor is the constuction nor the buttonholes etc. Many fake DAK straps are from original materials...

Hi Tim, it looks like the beige material used on my orange piped pair. I will add some photos here when time permits.
On the pair posted above the color is green. Fakers trying to correct their mistake?

Hi Chris

Thanks for confirmation. The two pics are different shades on my pc, upper more green, lower more beige. So perhaps just the lighting of the photos is the difference, but you may be correct. This could be a new batch from the same fakers ?

Re: DAK Feldbluse M43 ?

Same here with the color shades Tim.

I have checked my archive and i believe that i found a match for these straps. Compare the backing of the tongues and the piping. See those diagonal stripes of the piping's thread?

Re: DAK Feldbluse M43 ?

Well done Chris, thats a match for sure with the piping and the beige underlay on the tougues that spell trouble.

Interesting in that the fakers have not tried to "age" these like some of the other sets we have seen like this.
