I am about to pull the trigger on a prussian army for SYW. I note that manufacturers have Prussian infantry in Prussian cuffs and Swedish cuffs. Is there some sort of arcane way to know which cuffs and when? I am trying to look for myself but i Have none of the uniform books yet. Any guidance would be much appreciated.

You're welcome! I still love printed references but the site is too good to overlook.

Yes, that is a quick go-to site many of us use.
