The tunic is in very good condition. The EGA is missing from the left collar. We spotted a moth hole on the edge of the left sleeve and a very small one above the tip of the cuff edging on the right sleeve. The C in the patch seems to be missing. We cannot tell if it wore off or it was just never sewn in and the patch maker made an error.
The ruptured duck patch is oddly worn as well. While going over this uniform carefully to describe it’s condition, we just noticed a dark spot between the first button and the left breast pocket. Upon close examination, we discovered it is some sort of professional repair that is only on the outside. The sewing does not go through to the inside so this repair must have been made while they were making the uniform.
