Hussar Krätzchen - help needed

Post by Markgraf » Tue Aug 15, 2017 9:23 am

An Eigentumsstück Krätzchen of the Husaren-Regt. von Zieten (Brandenburgisches) Nr.3, in moderate condition before the restauration.

The maker is Otto Haue[?], Rathenow.

It seems to me a pre-1897 piece, at least I can't find any trace of the Reichs-Kokarde.

Sadly the original Kokarde has gone - my question is: Where can I buy an appropriate replacement piece (copy or original)?

Thanks in advance!

One more question: anybody knows the maker? What is the whole text of the label?

Bálint I am sorry but I do not have a Prussian Mannschaften cap Kokarden with pins. This is what you need. I have spares for issue Krätzchen and officers but no men with pins. I had several but I must have given them away. Tony

No problem! Could you recommend a good quality copy (or an original for sale) to me?

I have purchased from them, always small stuff, and I have been pleased.
