This is a fine example of a depot-issued pre war dunkel-blau (dark-blue) 6 Rheinisches Infanterie-Regiment Nr 68 feldwebel’s tunic. The Regiment was raised in 1860 and garrisoned in Coblenz. It was attached to the Prussian VIII. Armeekorps. The tunic’s front sports a single row of eight gold-toned buttons down its center. The collar, center trim, and cuffs are red. Gold bullion tape decorates the red collar. The same bullion tape appears on each cuff, along with three gold-toned buttons. The shoulder straps are a lighter blue, with the regimental number “68” embroidered in red on each. The small, gold-toned buttons that hold the shoulder straps in place each boasts a “3,” designating “Kompagnie Nr 3.” The tunic’s reverse boasts red trim at the bottom, along with six, large, gold-toned buttons. I see one small hole on the reverse and one period repair on the obverse. Otherwise, only normal wear is apparent. The tunic’s interior features a cotton liner, with a single depot mark on it. It is a fine tunic, overall.
