militaria item Bavarian NCO pickelhaube plate
- German
This is a typical private purchase piece, die-struck in gilding metal with a light gilt wash, with screw post reverse as opposed to soldered loops on issue helmets. It would have been worn on the infantry or dragoon helmet by an NCO or perhaps an 'einjahriger' volunteer/officer candidate.

militaria item Unknown Weimar/Third Reich lapel badge, 'B.W.R.B.'
- German
This nice enamel and silver-coloured lapel badge (2.1cm diameter) by C Poellath of Schrobenhausen could be of Bavarian origin, with blue and white on one of the enamel shields, black and red on the other. It could be anything from a student fraternity badge to some veterans' union piece.

militaria item Garde insignia, possibly for busby or shako?
- German
This (9cm diameter) appears to be made out of a Prussian Garde star in pressed tin with a blackened finish. However, the centre element of the star has been cut away and a German crown, possibly a ducal one, imposed thereon. I don't think this is a modern pastiche piece; I think it is a war-time example of some Garde unit for a minor German state.

militaria item 2 Prussian Landwehr officer's cap cockades
- German
The Landwehr were the first line of the reserve, the second line being the Landsturm. The concept of the Landwehr cockade dates back to the Napoleonic Wars and was always in the form of a Maltese cross. These cockades would have been worn on the front of the cap, under the national cockade in black, white and red.

Three of these were worn: one at each side and one at the rear of the mitre cap. The original battalions wore flaming grenades in the same places. The officer's version was gilt.

militaria item Landwehr cross, officer's field cap
- German
This impressed silver cross (5cm square) would have been worn in the 19th century, anywhere from Waterloo through to the Franco-Prussian war of 1871. It would probably have been worn on the soft field cap or shako. It doesn't have the usual logo of Mit Gott etc. However, it is almost certainly a Prussian example on account the Maltese cross design.
