I am with Glen. Tunic is good, but Insignias restored, all of them. And not really very good.

Insignia is original, but is sown on tunic after WW2.

Replaced mean sewn on after war ( recetly sewn on ); in other words not original to the tunic ( not the primary one which were applied in wartime period ).

Many thanks for your helping

I knew the insignia were not original stitched the tunic, I wanted to know instead that everything was definitely original.

I had the doubt that the phrase given by AntiqueWW2 "not really very good." was referred to the insignia.

I beleive this tunic (without insignias) was sold on a ratisbon's auction in December 2018. ("butschek antiques")

The description was:

"Waffen-SS M43 "2-hole" field tunic -Lot 35-0121
Original Waffen-SS M43 field tunic. A textbook "2-hole" example which was only issued to Waffen-SS troops. Complete with all period time attached buttons. Removed insignia.
Grey cotton lining seriously damaged by a mouse. No stamps visible. Minor mothing and some small cracks. Two large repairs.
Condition 3.
Medium size."

I too, remember that tunic without insignia.... The liner was thrashed - making it recognizable... Thinking (I may be very wrong) that it was recovered somewhere in a house in Poland...

Again - the last part I may be off.
