    Hey folks!

    I picked this set up a while back and I am curious if you all might know more about it.
    The standard uniform is much more grey than this set but I have no doubt of its legitimacy.

    My best guess is that it is some sort of artillery set.

    I am also interested in knowing more about these uniforms! I've got a small collection and no idea about what they are.

    The odd thing is the jacket has internal pockets while for at least 100 years the tradition is external pockets. I have one with straight pocket flaps that appears to be for cavalry.

    The double breasted jackets come in several styles from what I've seen. They appear to be a mid season coat vs. the full length great coat. I've seen them with both internal and external pockets.

    BTW, mine are still up for sale/trade Very Happy

    Yeah there seem to be many models from the Swiss during this period. I have two of those double breasted smocks (one of which I'm trying to get rid of) and one of the greatcoats they are all made extremely well.

    I think the Swiss soldiers were given some freedom with how they modified their garments.

    I know! You never responded to my last email! Sad
