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

[From a vendor, rather than a buyer]

I'm delighted that you are happy with the badge and I hope you can sell it to someone who will value owning it.

I tried to sell it on eBay but they won't accept Nazi items. I then contacted several dealers via a Google search who mostly offered me 40-50 after some haggling. Most of the other dealers tried to conceal its true value in their replies and also lacked manners which doesn't inspire confidence.

Ultimately it's about trust. I should think that most prospective sellers have done their own research and therefore know roughly what their item is worth. You were the only dealer who had the integrity to concede that my valuation was approximately correct and I respect your comment that you can't offer this as you need to make a profit. Your honest approach is greatly appreciated and I felt comfortable taking the risk in sending it to you.

Thank you for a smooth transaction
