Title KuK other rannks belt buckle, model 1888
Nationality Austrian
Period c 1890-1915
Price £75.00

This is the standard other ranks buckle worn throughout WW1 on a brown or black belt by all arms except cavalry. It is in die-struck brass; later in WW1 a die-struck steel example was produced and these are considerably scarcer than the brass examples.

Structurally this piece is sound, but there is some age and polishing wear to the central coat of arms and the highlights of the eagle.

NB: This has a natural shine which isn't replicated in the photograph, which was taken to illustrate the condition of the metal.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

Picked up the dirk this morning and actually waited until I got back home before unwrapping the package. It really exceeded my expectations...whilst the photos were good, to see and feel it in three dimensions was very exciting. A beatutful piece Chris, and worth the wait.

Many thanks for sending the Troddels to me. I was very pleased that they were in the fine condition that you described.
