Internal straps for belt support hooks have the correct 4 holes.


The tunic is in good used condition with Heavy nap wear to all exposed parts. The tunic has probably been cleaned along time ago. Lining shows signs of use with a couple of wear holes as well as stains and minor discoloration.


The tunic has a shade from a former sleeve eagle and the wolfsangel collar tab to. This tunic is in our opinion completely restored. Still the restoration is very well made with correct threads, sewing techniques and most important original insignias. All match very well together and the restoration work is professionally done.


Very hard to find any SS tunic, this one also displays extemely nice with the new set of insignias. Only thing missing for a killer display is the cuff title!!
