Title KuK Landwehr officer's hat badge
Nationality Austrian
Period c 1914-15
Price £70.00

This magnificent badge is struck in gilding metal, which has then been electro-plated and enamelled. It shows the imperial double eagle with the Austrian coat of arms in the centre and the logo 'Algem. K.K. Landwehr-Abzeichen'. The Landwehr were the reserve units of the old Austrian infantry, based locally in the garrison towns.

There is no maker's mark and it measures 3.5cm across. This is one of the nicest examples of a KuK officer's badge that I have had through my hands for many years. It is in superb condition, with no enamel damage other than minor surface scuffing to the arms in the centre of the piece. It has obviously been treasured by many generations!
