1915 Dated Leutnant Tunic Named to a Nobleman of the 4th (Magdeburg) Field Artillery Regiment “Prince Regent Luitpold of Bavaria”
The field gray tunic is quite clean, with a few very small scattered holes, but making an very fine appearance. The tunic is tailored from high quality field gray wool, with the collar and cuffs being piped in back while the front placket and the rear skirt are piped in red. The shoulder carry boards for a Leutnant, and they bear the metal cypher of the 4th (Magdeburg) Field Artillery Regiment “Prince Regent Luitpold of Bavaria”. The upper left breast has four loops for a long ribbon or medal bar (with it being very clear that there was once a fifth loop in the set), while on the lower left breast is a single loop for a badge or decoration, and again it is obvious that there was once another loop to create a pair). The tunic has the label of a Munich tailor in the interior pocket. This label is dated 1915 and it is named to a nobleman named “V. Loden” (“Von Loden”) which is preceded by what appears to be the title “Freiherr”. The tunic is in overall excellent condition.
