  1. Nice shoulder boards. I think I like the subdued boards better than the earlier patterns.
  2. Hi Chuck, I’m pretty sure the first ribbon is/was an EKII that the white stripes have worn off or become dark. I’ve seen the white stripes wear harder than the black. Ribbon guys may know why.
  3. Correct... and not much opinions on the Aviation Kleiner Rock
  4. That’s a good question... would be a great question had I known the answer.
  5. Yes, General Staff correct, could be Mecklenburg Schwerin or Strelitz
  6. I had a feeling it was me... confirmation is always helpful.
  7. Nice- I need to create a display wall in my collection room but I’m lazy when it’s nice I like to site outside in the backyard and drink beer and scotch and it’s finally very nice outside sunny and 80°
  8. I’m not sure who owns this tunic now but it’s a real beauty
  9. That’s probably the best wartime display I’ve ever seen. I absolutely love the coat...
  10. This forum is lacking participation in a bad way.... is it... a. Lack of interest b. Lack of good content c. Me
  11. Thanks for posting the advertisement- I don’t really understand why many Litewka and Kleiner Rock dont have matching boards. Many I’ve examined look like the boards are sewn in very nicely and look original. Sometimes I see obvious replacement so mostly assume those are tampered with but not sure why. I don’t think changing the boards coupd ever make the tunic more expensive or desirable. As for the aviation one I posted, it looks very nice to me and the boards look original as do the collar tabs. So, was it always aviation or was it once cavalry or Train? Who knows..... I like cavalry tunics so when people mess with them trying to make an aviation it upsets be a bit. I do realize most aviators who transferred to the air service maintained there prior branch uniforms and added wings to their boards. Many didn’t ever do that. the JzP kleiner rock confuses me more on all the repairs. I don’t understand why the damage and repairs unless don’t after the war. Isn’t the Litewka and Rock a behind the lines tunic?
  12. Another with shoulder boards that don’t have matching or double underlay
  13. I’ll look but think ribbon is Mecklenburg The shoulder board underlay color is near cornflower blue
  14. Me too.... I love it but I’d never be able to complete the setup with decorations, aiguillette, belt, etc.
  15. Hello, I came across this interesting Kleiner Rock and thought I’d post. It have gray collar tabs, silver buttons, and Officer boards that have a blue background, not gray.
