Title Senior diplomat's cap insignia
Nationality German
Period c 1940
Price £180.00

This mis-matched set is from the dark blue visor cap of the senior elements of the state officials and diplomatic corps, eg ambassadors. People like Ribbentrop and Constantin von Neurath can be seen in photos wearing this insignia. It was introduced for the diplomatic corps in 1938 on a black visor cap, a summer version being in white.

The eagle is clearly of somewhat different make to the cockade and the wool cloth backing has faded, whereas the cockade is in near ex-stores condition.

These rarely turn up on the market and I have priced this to take account of the mis-match factor.

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!
