Title Rhineland hussar regiment veteran's badge
Nationality German
Period 1926
Price £40.00

This rather splendid veteran's badge has its original paper retailer's label on the back in black and gold. The logo around the edge translated means the first regimental roll call of the former hussar regiment King William I, Bonn-on-the-Rhine.

Under the crown, the date on the ribbon says 12:14 on one side and 6.1926 on the other. At the bottom is the coat of arms of Bonn-on-the-Rhine.

It is a die-struck badge with an EPNS finish, probably on base metal of some sort. It could, however, just possibly be thin die-struck silver. In any case, I am reluctant to test it because of its fragility.

It is in good condition and, unlike the Austrian regimental badges, which survived in some quantity, you rarely see German ones nowadays.

Wanted to let you know the items arrived today. Great job on the packing. Too often I buy very expensive and irreplaceable items from the UK and they get sent barely packed to protect them from the various postal services - appreciate you going the extra mile to insure it arrived in the shape it left. Thanks again, look forward to doing business with you in the future. Items were very nice, exactly as offered.
