I agree that the rule was to have it above the pocket and on 95% of the M36 officer tunic you will find just that.
But sometimes as we all know they didn't quite follow that as seen on the pictures.

The OP's tunic might have an original sewn eagle and then again it might be reaplied as the eagle in question is of the large type which will cover the smaller types easily without a trace.
Still I think he should leave it as it might be originaly wartime applied and nothing is more boring than tearing it off and seeing that it was originaly applied.

AS for the D I tend to agree with Bob(Waffenreich) as it is not very settled in the shoulderboards.

Don't collect tropical tunics so I didn't know the eagle was supposed to sit over the pocketflap on those, but now I learned something new which is always good.

Thank you very much guys, I have learned a little from this. I will keep everything as is. I agree myself that the D cypher is not settled and sort of just sits on top rather than more sunken in on the shoulder boards. However this seems to be the only thing that is the problem but I don’t think it’s necessary to remove them. I’m happy to hear the tunic is original and that I made the right call. If everything else is original to the tunic then I’m not fussed. Again, thank you guys and I hope to find more nice tunics.
