Hello Gentlemen!
Here's my uniform for a prussian soldier (infantry) from 1870-1907/15.
This sevice tunic was produced in 1867-1887 (no sidehooks). The black trouser with red braid (1870-1895) had one little pocket on the right side (post 1895 the trousers got two pockets).
 
-facine knife from 1864 
-sword knot ( lost the crown)
-belt buckle from 1847
-breadbag/haversack is the old type (white canvas) from marine infantry (imperial german navy), but identically contructed
-canteen is from a swiss-depot and identically with the german 1867 canteen
-the socket bayonet was for the Zündnadelgewehr in the 1860´s

Here are some additional images of my jackboots (1864/66).
They include a comparison of a pair of restored and unrestored jackboots (definitely original).
I got the unrestored boots from an attic in northern Brandenburg. One of the previous owners stuffed some documents inside of them, dating back to 1941 (see picture below).
