I was praying that someone could ID this uniform. It's a picture of my Great Great Grandfather (Franz J Holl). I believe he was living somewhere in Baden, Germanany (1870)

Sergeant in the army. Presumably the army of Baden. Note the NCO cuff lace, and the shortsword (not an officer's sword, nor a bayonet).

Thanks Mark but the Baden military didn't use that type of shoulder epaulettes or cuff neither did the Prussian's

I tried to find any uniform that is like that and didn't find much online. I did find however you can ask "experts." Unless you run into an expert on here I don't think you'll get a good answer. You could post that pic to these people on the link I provided and see what their input is. Other sources that I think that may help you would be a antique dealer or a historian that specializes in military history. Hope this was of some help to you.
