Title 6th Cavalry Troop Division KuK 'tinnie', hallmarked silver
Nationality Austrian
Period c 1914-15
Sold

At the outbreak of war, there were eight independent cavalry divisions, comprising two to three cavalry brigades in each and attached to individual army corps. Typically a cavalry division had 305 officers and 6,864 other ranks. '6.K.//T.D.' (6 Kavallerie Truppen Division) was one of these.

This is a nice silver hallmarked example, with clear Austrian hallmarks, and it is also maker and quality marked. The 'M' at the bottom of the badge stands for St Michael, viz the figure slaying the dragon, presumably the divisional patron saint.

It measures 3cm long and its condition is very fine.

The day the blunderbuss arrives I could not stop looking and feeling the gun for at least one hour. My wife told me that I was sick........ I am very happy, it is a piece of craftsmanship! Well made! I have 5 blunderbusses but all iron barrel, also from England but this one is gorgeous with the Brass Barrel.

Please keep me informed when you have any other type of blunderbuss. Thanks my friend!
