I had a YBB for many years,,a beauty. We're moving and really can't take care of larger items anymore so,, I sold it at the MAX at very low price to this Organization in Toronto for Ukrainian families to see and learn that their family weren't nazis and most of the time just fighting for independence late war and after!!. Sorry for the mini rant,,but that eagle too was bevo type and not thru lining..
The only thing I know is that the tunic is original. The insignia has been there a long time and has settled into the cloth. Whether it's 1960s old vs 1940s old is in the eye of the beholder. The VS wore a variety of civilian and military clothing and insignia. The majority of them appear to have worn civilian clothing. I attached a few pictures. Jim

Default tunic

I've had a couple of these Dutch re issues over the years and they both had factory applied litzen, original to them and no doubt. For some reason eagles on these always seems to be hand applied, could be due to the thickness of material, not really sure but never seen a machine applied eagle on them that I can remember.

Like you mentioned it's would be very difficult to machine sew an eagle on this tunic because of the thickness of the lining material. However I've seen a number of original late war German made tunics that were machine sewn through the lining material. I think it was just quicker to do it that way. Jim
