Please note on the helmet above that the sword
held by the eagle has a straight hilt
not the normal s curve that we see on Grenadier eagles

Detail of the officers collar and cuffs L G R 8

Officers epaulettes and shoulder straps L G R 8
I think closer to the 1888 date due to the size of the straps
and the thick schnurr material

To continue with the L G R 8
Three different pairs of Officers shoulder straps
Left ; the Lt. Col. pair early in the M1888 Pattern
The massive size with the thick schnurr material
and the cyphers and crowns of a size almost
for use on the epaulettes .
middle pair more the normal size pair used later on
the pair on the right is the 2 underlays
when they switched the Infantry to white
but certain elite regiments where allowed
to retain their old underlay color in this case red
