Thanks for the info!
The 120+ year old (probably hand-tinted) photo is very fuzzy and faded from age so its very hard to make out details such as on the belt buckle.
Does the color (red) of the lanyard, braided cord and tassels, signify anything?
I've seen other photos on this board of Austria-Hungary uniforms with other color lanyards such as green.

Did Austria-Hungary draft men into the service in the 1880s-1890s in the Galicia region (mostly Ukranians)?
What age did they typically enter the service, late teens?
There are some old stories from older relatives that he may have been a border guard, would that type of uniform be correct for that?
Is this an infantry uniform?
