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.

The day the blunderbuss arrives I could not stop looking and feeling the gun for at least one hour. My wife told me that I was sick........ I am very happy, it is a piece of craftsmanship! Well made! I have 5 blunderbusses but all iron barrel, also from England but this one is gorgeous with the Brass Barrel.

Please keep me informed when you have any other type of blunderbuss. Thanks my friend!
