Description

This exquisite quality German Navy Admiral tunic is constructed out of nothing but the best materials.  Sized 38 to 40 US, this example features full bullion sleeve stripes indicating the uniform was worn by either an Admiral or a General Admiral (the higher of the two ranks).  Included in this group is a 1939 Iron Cross Spange period-sewn to the left lapel, and a Navy style medal bar which does appear to be original to the tunic (proper length of the bar pin to the loops on the tunic).  The original Uboat badge which shows considerable wear, may or may not be original to the tunic.  The medal bar, if original to the tunic, may provide a clue as to the original wearer of this tunic, as the number of admirals of this rank is small.  Condition is 99% - really a like-new looking piece that would easily represent this branch of service in a higher-end uniform collection.
