This uniform was originally sold at the auction back in 1989 - "Ferdinand I. Zar von Bulgarien" conducted by Karlheinz Müller, Limburg.

There was entire catalogue of items belonging to Tsar Ferdinand. I see at least 150 positions in that book.

It looks like large part of Ferdinand's estate was auctioned (uniforms, cases, headwear, etc), meaning there are a lot of his items out there...

You can buy it It is only 65 000 EURO It is for sale on Ebay Germany  or you can contact the Seller House of History Hamburg Germany He might sell it cheaper  I also believe that such items belong to the Military Museum in Sofia.

It is interesting to find out who put the items for sale on the Auction in 1989

 If it is King Simeon It is a shame He sold too many items on different auctions he is selling the history of Bulgaria.

I think it was Simeon who put Ferdinand's items for sale.

In reality such items are pain to keep and require proper special care, specifically for wool and fur. Uniforms are bulky, you can't just put them on a hanger and hang in a closet. Plus you need to watch for moth and other dangers...

With time they become more of a liability.

 

Awards are more portable and don't take as much space.

Можете да го закупите Тя е само на 65 000 евро е за продажба на Ebay Германия или можете да се свържете с продавача на Камарата на историята Хамбург Германия Можеше да го продават по-евтино Аз също вярвам, че такива елементи принадлежат на музея на Военния в София.

Интересно е да се разбере кой сложи елементите за продажба на търг през 1989 г.

 Ако тя е цар Симеон Срамно е Продаде Твърде много елементи на различни търгове той се продават историята на България.

Hi,
for great regret, King Ferdinad's grandson, Simeon, has sold many possessions to King Ferdinand, as well as many of the orders of King Ferdinand!
He should be very shy, but unfortunately - not so.

Its very sad , King Ferdinand was present at Kaiser Franz Joseph funeral dressed in the uniform auctioned . in the same dress assisted to the coronation of emperor Karl as King of Hungary . The uniform is charged with History and in last instance belongs to Bulgaria .too .

Simeon is a character with very questionable motives.

Why do you think he ran for the Prime Minister post? One of the main reasons was access to land and property in Bulgaria. While he was a PM in Bulgaria laws were passed which allowed him personally and his relatives to acquire huge number of properties from Bulgarian state. We are talking about thousands acres of land, forests, palaces, buildings and other property. Some of the property was taken by Simeon under false claims, because it never belonged to the Royal family. After he left office lawsuits were filed and large amount of properties were transferred back to the state, including 450 acres of land and three palaces.

Old clothes and medals of his grandfather are nothing compared to this massive wealth grab!
