US civil war?....
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
A number of European armies used this uniform cut during the mid to late 1800's. There appears to be a royal crown of the head of the chair. But I could be wrong there.
It may be Tudor Crown on the chair which could indicate if correct around 1902. The photo looks older but I guess condition will be dictated by storage over the years.
None that we are aware of. It has always been assumed that the person in the photo was a Brit
typical buckle of the pre WW1 period.
Very doubtful that this US. Collar, cuffs, and general cut not correct and to few buttons. Shoes also appear to be incorrect for US. The two piece buckle was not worn by regulars and the militia units stopped wearing them by the Civil War (Federal units).
Is he military? Could he be police or fireman? This style uniform in the US was worn long after the military gave it up. No enlisted frock coats were ordered by the US government in 1864 or after.
