OK. I just got this WWI uniform with the ribbon bar attached, and the hat. I don't doubt its authenticity (or should I??). There are some small moth nips and the hat has wear on the inside with the brim coming off (how do you fix that anyway??). I think it is a medical officer. I also think the ribbon bars are for: L to R: EK II, 5 Yrs service?, and Hindenburg medal with swords. I am looking for comments/info on this lot... Is this German or Prussian? Is it a true WWI uniform or the 'transition type" uniform between the wars? Any idea as to value of something like this?? I have some WWII stuff, but this is my first WWI purchase! Thanks in advance for your help!
