Title KuK veteran's buttonhole
Nationality Austrian
Period c 1918
Price £35.00

This, I am fairly sure, is an Austrian example, though there is an outside chance that it could be generic, produced for both Austrian and German veterans. There is apparently a Hungarian example, very similar to this but with Hungarian wording on the cross and more detail, which makes it more likely that this badge is Austrian.

There is a silver (I don't know if it is true silver or not - too small to be hallmarked) helmet and sword pinned on top of the shield.

It measures just over 2cm long and, apart from some wear to the gilding, is in pretty good shape for its age, with a little crackelure to the enamel.

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

testimonials

Just to let you know that the bayonets arrived safely this morning and I am extremely happy! They are everything that I had hoped they would be, but better! I am extremely pleased that i purchased them from you. The 1867 Albini ... is an absolute beauty, the blade is immaculate. The other is in fact in far better condition that I had imagined as well. So all in all, I couldn't be happier! Many thanks Chris.

I very much look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
