GENERALLEUTNANT’S ÜBERROCK – – PRUSSIA

SKU: 15-524

$2,195.00

This is a Generalleutnant’s überrock (frock coat). These tunics were most commonly seen and used prior to 1905. The tunic is dark-blue (dunkel-blau) in color. The collar is red and displays NO kragenspiegel (as do later tunics). A double row of six gilt buttons (twelve buttons in all) runs down the tunic’s front. No buttons appear at the cuffs, just single, thin, red trim lines. Its shoulders sport a pair of sewn-in Prussian Generalleutnant’s shoulder boards. Each shoulder board displays a single gilt pip. (Each pip shows substantial wear and fading, but both are clearly gilt). The reverse’s vent boasts four more gilt-toned buttons, and red trim. The tunic interior’s black silk is in beautiful condition. Its exterior displays some scattered mothing. The fourth buttonhole’s surrounding area has a concentration of three noticeable moth nips. The other moth nips are limited and scattered. The right sleeve’s edge also has some fraying and mothing (clearly detailed in the description’s accompanying photographs). It is wonderfully bargain-priced for a General’s tunic.
