The materials certainly look period to me, however I am not familiar with this type of bullion Heer Para, never seen one before in pics like this.

I agree with Tom, the materials look good and for me the construction looks nice as well, albeit the actual embroidery is a little crude.

I ham only familiar with the 2 cloth versions (non bullion) so, if good, this is an unbelievably rare piece.

I also like the fact that its been denazified. Fakers don't typically do that, on the contrary they are always sticking swastikas on things that didn't start out with one!
