hi, i am picking a kar88 up this weekend (had to put it on layaway,mucho dollers>) anyway its an erfurt dated 1891 all numbers match, not an oddball # anywhere on it, im over the moon i have a couple of comm88"s but just had to get their little brother it's in fab condition ,all original ,no sanding i can detect on wood and the furniture is still holding it;s blue except where its supposed to be in the white.
i will get some pics up soon and i will need a little help with the regimental band marks to find out where it was issued and to what regiment .
i know you can help with this iv/e seen you all do it before.
have a great day :jmp:

To upload a pic scroll down to where it says "upload attachment" and click on and a screen will pop up then go to where your pics are stored, click on the one you want and then hit the upload button.

If you use photobucket it will automatically resize them.
