Title Other ranks Leib Hussaren busby plate
Nationality German
Period c 1914
Sold

Nice example of busby plate as worn by 1st and 2nd Leib Hussaren regiments of the Prussian cavalry. This rather definitive design was the prototype for all the later death skull insignia of the Third Reich. It is made of solid nickel silver and has brass fittings soldered to the reverse. Quite a rare badge.

Dear Chris, truncheon arrived safe and sound yesterday... what a beauty! I look forward to our next transaction.

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!!!
