    The marks on the sleeve clearly indicate something other than Kriegsmarine.

      Well, hence my doubts. And the eagle mark on the chest?

        This art seems identical. What is your opinion about this store and this jacket?

            This jacket is some kind of belgian or dutch navy which had sometimes a breast eagle to become a KM jacket .
            The lower pockets flaps are even missing ...

              the flaps in the lower pockets are - I took the picture wrong.

                  Thank you for your opinion. Is the one from the store also a contemporary product? It is exactly the same ...

                    Looks more of a Pakistani pigeon than an eagle.

                      The one from the link has an added button and buttonhole to make it look like a 4 button tunic. And there is the Pakistani eagle.. and many other details. Definitely not wartime KM.

                      Both tunics are postwar lookalikes, similar to KM and to eachother, but not the same.
                      The traces of the eagle in the first tunic are added to fool novice collectors. Very easy to do, ebay is full of them.
                      Be careful with these and always check first!!

                        Something the Fakers like to do. In your Case it is a Dutch Navy Tunic where everything is removed and with a bit of Steam they added the outlines from an Eagle to make it look like KM. Also the one in the Link...i guess this one was a Royal Navy and now it is a funny German with a Pakistani Bird. Here is how a real one should look like, named and from a well known KC Winner.
