Title Foreign Service officer's helmet chin chain, 1879 pattern, gilt
Nationality British
Period c 1879 on
Sold

This is the chin chain for the Foreign Service helmet, with a white leather lining. The Home Service helmet chin chains normally had a dark blue velvet lining.

It is in excellent condition, but the gilt finish is a little tarnished, with spots of verdigris here and there. The stitching, however, is in good order, even if the leather has shrunk a little.

testimonials

The bayonet arrived yesterday in good order. Fits my musket perfectly. Quite pleased, and many thanks for a very satisfactory transaction.

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.
