I see what Jerry is talking about now. Alex any signs of the white thread that the eagle is sewn with to the front of the jacket on any other parts of the tunic ?

I already noted those signes on the lining; they were produced by the metallic feet of the sewing machine. The tunic is unissued and the internal lining is still as it was in the days it was produced.

I believe this is an accurate assessment. I own an officer tunic where, from photos, I initially questioned whether the collar tabs had been replaced because the material under the collar exhibited this same type of 'ghost' parallel to the tab stitch lines. Once I examined it in hand it was apparent they were not previous stitch holes but rather during original application the sewing machine feed dog teeth was the cause of the 'ghost' lines.

About Buckliger's feldbluse, it's a bit curios that two tunics manufactured by the same firm used two different characters.
I would invite Buckliger to post some pictures of his one to compare with my tunic

The "ghosts" aside, the thread and stitching used to attach the eagle appears identical to those attaching the pocket immediately below it.

Yes, it' s the same thread used by the same sewing machine.
Most of the tunics m 43 produced just before the new jackets m 44 had the breast eagles sewn over the lining. The producers continued to apply them in this way on almost all the m 44 jackets

If there had been an actual machine stitch line through that rayon lining and then removed, you would be seeing a much stronger indication of it than what we see in this photo. I have seen this before on the backsides of some collars where the tabs are on Officer tunics were fine fabric was used as collar backing. Not everything that is claimed to be a stitch line Is or was a stitch line.

That was my thought as well.
