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.

I received the silver Verdienstkreuz this morning. Your swiftness and dedication was very much appreciated and, though the envelope arrived with a Post Office sticker saying it had been found open or damaged, the cross was unharmed and looks beautiful. Thanks for your time.
