PRUSSIA – ÜBERROCK – OBERST – -REGIMENT von KATZLER (SCHLESISCHES) Nr 2

SKU: 15-570

$1,495.00

This is a commanding Oberst’s überrock from the Ulanen-Regiment von Katzler (Schlesisches) Nr 2.. This Regiment was founded in 1745. It was garrisoned in Gleiwitz-Piess and assigned to the VI ArmeeKorps. An überrock was the army tunic’s long, frock coat version. Like a standard prewar tunic, it is dark-blue. It has a double row (six to each side) of gilt-toned buttons. Stitched into the second buttonhole is a 1914 Iron Cross 2nd Class ribbon. Another ribbon is present, which on first sight appears to be from Braunschweig. It displays, however, an unusual black and white trim on either side that I cannot identify. The collar is all red. A thin red trim line runs centrally from the collar to just below the tunic’s final button. Red trim is also visible at the cuffs. Its shoulder boards are of the slip-on variety. Each sports the regimental designation “2,” along with an Oberst’s twin gilt pips. The left breast displays two pairs of sewn-in loops. One is quite large. It appears to be for a larger decoration, or possibly even a breast star. The second pair is very close and could have held an Iron Cross 1st Class. The tunic’s reverse has a total of four gilt buttons in the vent area. The tunic’s interior is equally clean, boasting a black, traditional silk liner. It is a high-quality tunic at a very fair price.
