Title KuK 'tinnie' commemorating the Central Alliance
Nationality Austrian
Period c 1915
Price £20.00

This badge, with the logo 'Viribus Unitis', commemorates the early years of the war, 1914-1915 struck in a laurel wreath between the soldiers. The enamelled arms are those of Germany, Austria and Hungary.

This tiny badge (nearly 2.2cm long) looks better in real life than it does in my photo. Most of the silver-plated finish has disappeared on the front, showing only in the highlights on the uniform of the two soldiers, Austrian and German. In real life, it looks an overall coppery colour, whereas my photo highlights the patchy remnants of the silver-plating.

The hook is missing from the reverse, hence the price.

I'd just like to thank you for the SS Buckle, this has to be one of the best items I have yet and am very happy with it.

The dirk arrived this morning and I could not be happier with it! Excellent little piece, most unusual... I look forward to doing more business with you, as finance permits; rest assured you will be highly recommended to my collecting colleagues.
