I agree with Steve, I'd guess Russian. I can see the buttons have a crest or something on them, can you post a close up? Also appears the cuffs are "Polish" cut similar to the Uhlan Regts.

I think this may be a Royal Bulgarian officers tunic, late 1800's or early 1900's. The Bulgarian uniforms used crowned rampant lion buttons, and the cut in this photo appears similar to what you have. As to rank, without the boards I don't think you can tell unless there is an owners label inside. The back of the buttons are from the Bruder Schneider, Wien (Vienna) It could be that the uniform was tailored in Vienna for this officer.

Anyway, that's my best guess...Hope this helps

Dennis ;
Great photo
Thanks for posting .
The Czar of Bulgaria had a lot of uniforms
and he was loaded with medals .
He was the Chef of the Prussian Inf. Regt. 72
I think the uniform looks a lot like the one
in the posted photos .

Badger, I fixed the code on your pics so that they show here properly. The key is once you have pasted the code from Photobucket into your post, you have to remove the [img] or [Img] from the beginning and end of the code. The code has to begin and end with [url]. I do not know why this has to be done, it just does.
Remember, Pillage first THEN Burn ...
