If I can ever "unscrew" my PayPal(it is locked because it thinks someone tried to access my account), I will pay a mere 400 for this unquestionably original tunic. Worst case scenario, the sum of it's parts is worth more than 400!! I will just have to find an equally worn eagle and a matching button for temporary application!

It looks like the man walked home from France upon the surrender, in that tunic! Maybe it did some time in a POW internment camp? Here are the repaired elbows!

It has loops for a small ribbon bar as well. I think that a crusty 1914 EK2 and an HK would go on nicely!

I see that he has the imperial pilots badge. I also read that he has the Pour Le Merite.

Does anyone else know of his other decorations?

No, he did not have a PLM, but he had at least:

- pre-WW1 Mecklenburg Griffin Order

- pre-WW1 Reuss house order on peacetime ribbon

- BMVO4X 28.05.1915

- SA3aX 26.05.1915 (as a Hauptmann in FFlAbt 42)

- HHOX 3.10.1916 (listed as "Heemkerck", flyer in Turkish service)

- an unknown number of Turkish awards
