    Not the wrong ones at all. The Leibers had two gray uniforms prior to the war, One, the "Friedensgarniture" had the Litzen on collar and cuffs. The second, the "Kriegsgarniture" had no Litzen. This one appears to be a hybrid of the two, circa early 1915 to early 1916. It has the Kriegsgarniture cuffs with the simplified shoulder straps (no piping, no tongue) and the shortened collar Litzen. There were lots of uniform changes in throughout 1915 and early 1916, so I'm not surprised to see this mish-mash. As we have seen with the Bavarian (and I am sure with the other contingents) the shortages caused everything to be used. New items were added to uniforms when they came available. So, you would have an older stock tunic like this one getting the upgraded insignia when it was issued.
