    Russian pre-1917 uniform!

    Hi am a newby and I was informed that I could possibly get some help on this forum! This is the grandfather of a friend of mine. He was born in Russia SPB in 1880 and served in the military. He passed in 1976 and no one ever asked him what he did in the Czars military... we are hoping the uniform might tell us something.
    His name was Konstantin Mikhailovich Geystor. As you can see the photo was taken in SPB by Julius Weidenbaum.
    Thank very much for whatever we might learn. Barry

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    I'm certainly no expert on Imperial Russian uniforms but will share my thoughts. At first glance the uniform appears much like a M1907 tunic, but the collars and shoulder boards appear incorrect for the Imperial Military.

    Is it possible it is a Police or Post Office uniform? Here are some period cards featuring Post Officer uniforms.

    Civil service, not military. Looks like crossed quills or oak leaves on the collar.
