  1. Fascinating! Thanks for the input Bayern! Unfortunately I didnt remember to check it before I had it sealed in plastic and put into storage, foolish I know!
  2. Oh my goodness. Thanks Naxos and Ulsterman, those are some tremendous suggestions! How on earth did you arrive at those conclusions?! Naxos - I'll check inside the tunic again for markings when I get home from work. None were immediately obvious but I didnt check the tails and I may very well have missed something.
  3. Hahaha! Well thats much better than calling me "Stupid." By the way, sorry for putting this in the wrong category, didn't realise till now.
  4. interestingly, the tails on the rear (well, not sure of what the correct terminology is).. they dont have clefts, and instead are straight cut.
  5. Hi All! Well.. where do I begin. Ive been trying to nut this uniform out for ages. For all I know - I bought it off ebay from one of you! I'm relatively new to the collectors scene, so I guess that doesnt help. I use this website as a reference, so I apologise to those who see me as a new face, and I hope this doesnt come across as a "stranger" leeching your brains for help. I have been afraid to post this on here for a long time for that very reason. But now, im at a wits end, and I have nothing to loose (except a little dignity)! Here goes. All I can take from this uniform is that its some sort of prussian uniform, which i purchased out of mere curiosity. I was assured it was absolutely authentic, though i doubt that because the inner lining of the sleeves doesnt have stripes, and any obvious markings. Perhaps it was a private purchase? The litzen are unlike anything ive seen - i guess, if anything, its reminiscent of a Hauptmann rank. There are no shoulder boards, they have been removed. The litzen actually have sequins integrated into the embriodery (sequins? really!?). The cuff has gilt embroidery, but again, with a pattern Ive never seen. I dont know if this could be some sort of non-standard service uniform (train troops etc..). Is this really an imperial military uniform? or is it the product of someones clever imagination? I recognise that the pictures ive provided dont show the detail of the rear of the litzen very well - I can take more pictures if required (but i will have to do so when i get home) - im just using pictures from the old ebay listing. ps. I'd just like to clarify.. my name on here is the non-gentleman.. not because im grotty and lack gentlemanly manner, but because im a lady.
