Default Artillery Spiess

Hello gentlemen,

Just picked up this artillery spiess from a dealer. Appears to be a Dutch made m40 tunic with upgraded dark collar, padding added to the shoulders, and the bandage pouch removed. Let me know what you guys think.

Hello FloridaLancer,
This is really a lovely example of a Dutch made tunic! I love the matching synthetic tress used throughout and the pips on the shoulderstraps showing rank advancement.
Thanks for sharing,
Curtiss

Hey guys,
May have to let this one go to make room for another purchase. Any other opinions are much appreciated.
