Title Officers' cap cockades (9)
Nationality German
Period c 1914
Price £120.00

These include two Wurtemburg examples, a Saxon one, a Brunswick one, several Prussian ones and two Reichs kokarden. They were worn (both in peace and war) on the front of the cap to indicate the state of Germany from which the wearer came. The other ranks examples were stitched in place, while these were pinned.

They are all in pretty good condition, although one very late war example (c 1918, by which time ersatz fabrication was coming in at many levels) with a paper backing is missing its prongs.

testimonials

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
