Here is one that was on ebay, comes out of Belgium. What do you guys recon on this one. Sure looks good but the shoulderboards throw me without the secondary piping.

Gary,

I rather like the look of this uniform and I don't see any immediate red flags that would discount it. It looks like the shoulder boards might have been resewn and I can't tell if the collar tabs are machine stitched but it looks promising.

Let us see some better pix when you get it.

Hello George, My thoughts exactly, but it looks as though the baords look as though they have been sewn from the top, rather than the sides. The sides look like orignal stitching to me just pulled. On close inspection of the photo It is clear that the stitching for the collar patches is machine sewn. Why the change in shoulderboards? Fashion? prefered ones without secondary coulour? loose? I dont know, I will have to see if it is the same on the other side

I guess one sure way to find out is to resersh the name. Anyone know where I can get this done??
