Title KuK tie pin
Nationality Austrian
Period c 1915

This splendid tie pin encapsulates the elan and enthusiasm with which the officer class greeted the start of WW1. The reverse has the logo 'Aus Eroberten Kanonen' (taken from captured cannon). It shows the Austrian infantry sword of the period, together with a junior officer's shako.

It measures 7.5cm long. The shako would appear to be in gilding metal with enamel and gilt finish. The sword, being magnetic, is made of iron and has most of its nickel silver finish intact, together with a maker's mark 'J.&L.' as well as 'Ges.Gesch.'

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

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...
