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.

I received the medals safely yesterday and I am very pleased with them.

Found the item a little on the expensive side and a bit disappointed that you were unwilling to bend a bit on the price of the Officer's Tunic Eagle (half the fun of buying, after all, is the haggling), but impressed by the speed of delivery and the quality of the item. Was well worth it in the long run...
