Title KuK 'tinnie' for Archduke Carl Franz Josef
Nationality Austrian
Period 1914-16
Sold

This little badge commemorates Archduke Carl's field service from 1914 to 1916. Typically these badges were sold to raise money for the widows and orphans of the relevant units and were normally worn on the left-hand side of the Austrian field cap. Sometimes as many as six were worn all together.

It is of die-struck pot metal badge and its condition is excellent, with most of the original anodised zinc finish remaining, although there is some wear to the highlights, such as his chin and nose.

testimonials

Just a brief note to confirm that the sabre has been delivered today. All is as it should be. I have to say I’m impressed with the ‘custom’ packaging, obviously essential in your line of business. I have made a very quick inspection of the sword & it fully lives up to your accurate description, very pleased with the purchase.

I'd just like to thank you for the SS Buckle, this has to be one of the best items I have yet and am very happy with it.
