If this busby at one time belonged to HR 7 there should still be holes from were the regiments Kaiser Wilhelm I monogram was fixed.

If these holes are present, that would support it being real.

Without any special knowledge on busby markings I doubt that the busby manufacturing process was so standardized that a deviating font in itself means the busby is a fake. Remember there were numerous manufactures spread all over Germany, and minor details as font used in markings wasn’t specified i...
