Sorry about including a repro item but it's been very tough to find an orignal one.

Richard,

I believe he states the uniform is original except for the Pelzmütze which is a repro.

Mr. Houf,

As Mike has already explained the uniform is original. The Pelzmütze I believe to be a reproduction.

Here are some sites you may check for reproduction items but I have no further information about them or their merchandise.

But the Attila is from an officier and the boots are Eigentums Boot from an NCO ......Officiers boots are metall on the top ..
Rasch mit dem Pferde, hart mit dem Schwerte,
im Sattel feste, beim Becher der Beste,
den Frauen hold, treu wie Gold,
Mut in Gefahr, das ist ein Husar

SUUM CUIQUE

Wonderful find, well done. Hussars uniform makers http://www.uniformandtunics.co.uk and http://www.officerandgentlemen.co.uk both offer a bespoke reproduction service for those of you who wish to have a new hussars pelisse or dolman made for a perfect fit. They create all types of uniforms and work from images and photos and drawings.

Very nice! I can understand purchasing a repro, I did that with a 6th Kuerassier, just to fill my own desire to look at something similar (but not quite right) until I found an original. Your Pelzmutze looks much nicer than the repro Kuerassierhelm I purchased.

:D Ron
I really do need to know more about this....
