Hi. I am seeking additional information about a pair of German Infantry 91 st. Regiment Oldenburg(guisches) 1871-1909 full dress military epaulettes in a blue kid Bavarian box with little white satin pillow with ties. Large, half moon, banjo board, with Oldenburg crown, + 2 pips, tassels are separate denoting higher rank. There is a Cypher of letter P upon them, which is a mystery?? I have seen many letters but no letter P?? Could it be Peter the Great? Super Gilt Crown maybe Grand Duchy, infantry or Dragoneer regiment?? These belonged to a Hauptman or Colonel Oberst Or better?? The top part where pips are laid upon looks like a white suede? Still pretty white! There was once some red felt underneath the epaulettes, (perhaps moths) No markings on box. The tassels are 3 1/2 inches long and the body is another 6 inches. These epaulettes were brought back from Eu by my uncle, himself a Colonel & recipient of the 'Order of Canada' for accomplishments on the hospital battlefield. It was quite the story & who He thought they belonged to, but he is long gone. I do not want to embellish But would like to confirm and learn as much as I can about these epaulettes.
Thanks for Any additional info or confirmation of such. More pics available if needed.
