Is this for real, or is this some kind of fantasy? It looks real enough, but the source is a forum for alternative history./Luke

This is an alternative history, though the uniform resembles more or less a real one. But the main difference are shoulder straps: in a real history most of policemen were civilian officials (except some quite rare cases when army officers due to some reasons became policemen). And as we know civilian official shoulder straps were narrower than military (approx. 75% of military shoulder boards width), and secondly, all stars on these shoulder straps were located longitudinally (transverse location of stars was inhered to military officers' shoulder boards).
But illustrations are nice, thanks Luke))
