Here is a photo showing a slightly enlarged view of the breast eagle on this tunic. For reference, while it is clearly machine sewn, the stitching does not show on the artificial silk lining behind it. This means it must have been put on the coat before the lining was installed.
Below is a photo showing a reverse side view of the 1939 Iron Cross second class that is machine sewn through the top button hole of this tunic.
The photo below is showing the location of the "KORREKT" maker label on the inside artificial silk lining of the pocket, which is otherwise hidden from view.
PROVENANCE AND CONDITION OF ARTIFACTS
Unless stated elsewhere in this description, this item is completely original to the pre May 1945 period. Moreover, it is in suitable condition to be displayed, handled or otherwise included in any collection of original World War II German militaria without alteration or treatment of any kind.
Unfortunately, most of the items that are being presented under the listing of Kriegsmarine have been acquired by RARE MILITARIA from various sources over a period in excess of forty (40) years. Consequently, in most instances, it is virtually impossible at this point for our firm to be able to provide you with any reliable level of provenance vis a vis the actual original owner of this uniform and any accessories. We are prepared, nevertheless, to guarantee that the components used in their manufacture, as well as the procedures in the assembly, fully comport with all standards employed by German industry before May 1945.
Item will ship via USPS Priority Mail Service. Shipping for this item is a flat rate of $35.00. This amount has been added to the selling price and includes insurance coverage.
