Imperial Officer's Shoulder Boards

Article about: I haven't been able to identify the cypher on these boards. Anyone know? The nine point coronet would indicate a count but who is Count "K" and what regiment was named after him?

    And here's a close-up of his shoulder board. As always, very hard to say anything conclusive about photo details – but I would say that this particular "K" cypher is a RIA pattern, not the German one. Available Russian cypers were no doubt worn as well.

    True, the "K" appears to be RIA but the coronet is the same as on my boards.

    In any case, it's a nice photo document of the cypher as worn by the unit.
