WWI Prussian Uniform


Recommended Posts

4th Miss Cav

Picked this up today.  I believe it is a Prussian uniform.  I am not very knowledgeable about these.  Has some mothing on sleeves but overall in good shape.  No tag inside but there is a very thick lining inside the jacket which makes it very hard to bend.  Buttons on shoulder straps have the number 3 on them.   Any thought would be much appreciated.

Far away from being an expert I´d say it look´s like a Hussar´s Attila.

Typically, numbered shoulder strap buttons indicate the Company numbers.  Can we see pix of the shoulder straps?  Looks like a Hussar to me as well.

Husaren-Regiment Landgraf Friedrich II von Hessen-Homburg (2. Kurchessisches) Nr 14, Dark Blue with White Frogging, shoulder strap for this regment has no has no monogram, toggle buttons should be White, the squadron button appears Yellow, should be White as well, but maybe its tarnish.

 

Shoulder strap seems to be an other ranks one, as this is an officers one

Thank you for the information

Will you be posting those other photos of the details for further ID of the shoulder boards?
