Here You are! The left pair is the same as in the picture above. The right ones are of a cornet of the Finnish dragoon regiment. Both pairs from about 1890-1900. Some moth-damage, as You can see. Sorry about the slightly poor picture quality.

Best regards!

Vlad ! No problem. Itīs a pleasure to share these pictures, especially in these days when you have to look at so much s..t in ebay etc. Thanks all of You for showing interest in this Finnish subject. The epaullette to the left needs identificaton. Which grenadier regiment ? Itīs quite large sized so I suspect it would be from 1860-1870?
Michael! Thanks for the catalogue hint. Iīll try to get hold of one.

Paul

Totally agree with you Paul about the s..t on Ebay and also agree with GEorge keep posting, that's the only way we can stop s..t.
About the epaulette, I'll try, (but wait for others) - it's a  lieutenant colonel(I think there are 3 stars missing) of the St. Petersburg German Emperor William III Grenadier Regiment.  ???
