78th Pictou Highlanders Pipers Grouping

Price: $599.00

Gorgeous grouping to 78th Pictou Highlander piper. This pre 1st War doublet and glengarry came together as is. The kilt and socks were added after the fact but are the correct pattern for the 78th Pictou Highlanders. The uniform itself is in very good shape with some wear around the collars from pre and post war use. Size stamped in the interior 5.10 and chest 39. No evidence of naming. All buttons are present(two top ones are in the pocket). The collars are a result of its post war usage as a piping society uniform from Cape Breton.the collars are easy enough to source but I have left it as is as the collars are a part of its history. Interestingly the collars are attached with wooden cotter pins. The glenn is also correct for a piper with its lack of dicing. It has an ostrich sewn to it that has been on there a very long time and I think it is quite possibly original to the piece. Overall condition is very good plus on this grouping. A rare opportunity to acquire a complete grouping ready to display.
