Title KuK 'tinnie' for Artillerie-Kdo Buchenstein
Nationality Austrian
Period 1916
Sold

This little tinnie shows an Austrian forward observation officer spotting for an artillery unit. The top of the badge has 'Col di Lana', which I suspect was on the Italian front. These badges were worn in the caps of the Austrian troops in WW1. This particular example has the maker's details on the reverse, 'Atelier G. Gurschner // Wien 7/2'.

Its condition is excellent for its age, except for a little minor white corrosion spots to the face of the badge and the pin and hinge on the reverse have been lost. The badge is made of die-struck zinc.

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

Just letting you know that the whistle arrived here this morning safe and sound. Your excellent packaging was still totally intact and it took me all of five minutes to break into it to see my purchase. I am very pleased, it is a great whistle.
