This is a fine example of a privately purchased and identified pre WW I dunkel-blau (dark-blue) tunic for a Königl. Sächs 4. Infanterie-Regiment Nr 103 private. The Regiment was raised in 1709. It was garrisoned at Bautzen and assigned to the XII. 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. The red cuffs boast two gold-toned buttons each. The shoulder straps are blue trimmed in red. Each has the regimental number “103” embroidered on it in yellow. Two small gold-toned buttons hold the shoulder straps in place. The tunic’s reverse displays red trim at the bottom, along with a total of four large gold-toned buttons. The tunic’s exterior is in very fine condition.
Inside the tunic we see that it has an officer’s style black silk liner. Up on the neck is a label that identifies the tunic and the soldier who owned it, as listed below.
“103 Regiment 7. Komp.
Overall, it is a good tunic.
