Title Prussian Train officer's epaulette
Nationality German
Period 1915-18
Price £25.00

This is an oberleutnant's example (one star). The silver bullion with black silk thread denotes a Prussian unit. The light blue underlay denotes the arm of service, in this case the Military Train (transport corps). The button is of gilding metal,with a gilt rank star.

This type of epaulette was developed for the war time tunics, being easier to remove for cleaning purposes. The earlier examples were stitched into the shoulder of the tunic. This was the pattern that continued in use through WW2, but with a narrower width.

Apart from the remains of an old paper label to the reverse, and some very minor moth scarring, this is in quite good shape.

Cutlass received today all in good order.

It is a fine addition to my collection.

Thank you for the fast and friendly service.

Picked up the dirk this morning and actually waited until I got back home before unwrapping the package. It really exceeded my expectations...whilst the photos were good, to see and feel it in three dimensions was very exciting. A beatutful piece Chris, and worth the wait.
