A defunct (European) museum display item being a 1922 pattern service dress tunic, representing a trooper serving with the 3rd Battalion, Tank Corps.
The tunic has been well researched and put together in a very meticulous, correct manner.
All the insignia I would say is reproduction but none the less looks very 'convincing'.
The exterior of the tunic appears to have been artificially 'grubbied up', with an oily appearance as one might expect from such a tunic servicing in an oily mechanical environment.
The interior of the tunic is clean and not in keeping with the exterior.
Their is some moth (none active) damage to a couple of areas of the tunic and insignia, so I am again assuming that the tunic has some age in terms of how long its been put together and its representation.
The tunic displays very well, and for a copy item 'catches the eye'.
The size is in keeping with a period tunic and is not overly large.
The marking to the interior, single letter, four digit, is I believe the museums stock / item code.
A very good representation of what would be a very, very rare original tunic....and at a fraction of the price of said original.

This is a SOLD Item.
It is currently on view in Mons Military Antiques ‘Archive Pages’ of previously stocked and sold items....For items currently on sale from Mons’ go to the ‘On-Line Shop’ pages !
