Title 3 pork pie tin cockades
Nationality German
Period 1914-18
Sold

These were worn on the front of the ORs soft round service caps in WW1, normally together with the national cockade (black/white/red). The colours work as follows: blue/white for Bavaria, black/white for Prussia. Typically, these sort of pieces were looted off caps, possibly as a result of prisoners taken on French raids, etc.

All three measure approximately 2.5cm in diameter, all showing varying degrees of age and service wear, the two Bavarian examples having some rust on the reverse.
