The price says a lot. It is a "sucker price." An original would sell quickly for twice that, even in today's market. That seller is highly suspect to begin with, and certainly knows the value of a real one, judging from his usual prices at the Max and SOS.

Pictures from link 3. Pictures easier to view instead of jumping back and forth from the regimental site which imo is a not so good website platform

Do you think we can have some informed opinions of the item itself, instead of comments about the seller . I really want to learn about this one.

Well done Lenny, you're doing a great job all over the site sorting out external photos
Yes would be great to hear from the experts on this, it looks well made to me, but would like to hear about any tell tale Reg flags....

It’s original LW wrap, original sewn eagle with newly added collar tabs ans cuff title. Buts still hard to find jacket even it’s restored.

Original uniform. When it was "finished" is anybody's guess. Would love to own it regardless!
The stamps are 100% original

Better pics are needed but the 344 and size stamps are good and the eagle looks originally applied. The boards are generic and not likely original to the jacket, and the tabs are likely postwar applied.
