I agree. Very nice M36 tunic with early, rarely seen, gray pre-war collar tabs. Everything looks original to the tunic to me. A rare tunic to be sure.
I have never seen a Potsdam sleeve eagle before either. Most relics seen these days are from the US sector/Bavaria.

Regards,
William Unland

Have to say that's a great looking tunic! Are the documents and other items in the one pic related to the tunic?

Very nice! Are you considering purchasing it, or is it already in hand? I too, am curious about the documents and accessories.

This sold on a Facebook militaria page for a price of $950 soon after it was posted here. I was watching it and now wish I'd have moved a little quicker.

Could also have started out post war as a stripped tunic with original insignia nicely reapplied.

That's always a possibility.

Interesting it sold, maybe it will show up again with a little more information about the documents & other items.

It could, if there was some clue I'm unable to detect.
