Michael and Uwe,

 

Interesting question.  I received a lot of Ebeling's hand written correspondence when I bought this uniform including pictures of him wearing it.  The pictures are all in black and white so I  can not tell if the aesculaps is different colour or not.  I checked the uniform and the pins on the aesculaps on both shoulder boards are gold.  Perhaps the gold finish has disappeared over the years due to interaction between the material the aesculaps were made of and the material used for gold finish.  I have no doubt that this uniform has not been alter in anyway from the time when Ebeling wore it.

 

Regards,

 

Gordon
