Re: AK Officier Jacket for opinion

Looking at the pics from my IPhone, tunic looks good as does the insignia, shows wear consistent with the tunic

Can you post photos of under side stitching application for collar tabs?

I personally like the stitching on the officer breast eagle however others may be of the opinion that it’s post war applied.
Thx for posting Seba neutral

Certainly an original tunic - I'd like to see the back of the eagle's sewing, please?
VERY attractive smile

Re: AK Officier Jacket for opinion

It's a great looking tunic Sebastian. It will always be a question of when the insignia was applied unless you have rock-solid provenance. Is there any remains of a depot stamp, by any chance?
Regards!

Re: AK Officier Jacket for opinion

From the photos it looks like the same thread has been used on both the collar tabs and eagle

Application of both looks promising, as to been wartime applied.

However As pointed out above by Mark you will never know for certain unless their some direct provenance to the tunic
Still a fantastic tunic to have come across
