Steve's latest find, a KAGGR1 Fusilier Battalion Officer Miter.

Post by coert65 » Tue Nov 10, 2020 2:21 pm

Hello friends,

Steve has sent me some pictures of his latest additions, for me to post on our forum.
He bought a fabulous KAGGR1 Fusilier Battalion Officer miter, which was earlier sold in 1974, to a German collector, it is now in Steve's collection.
Here are some pictures, first one of the Graf Klenau auction were it was sold.

Steve has bought this same miter at the Hermann auction. It is the most magnificent helmet Steve has bought in his 50 years of collecting.
There are only 2 examples known in private collections.
2 more pictures of it:

As usual, Steve will add more info, he was blown away with the way the miter looks, real quality!
I will post more pictures later this week, as Steve has sent me more. Not of this miter, but other helmets and a GFM strap with great provenance.

Have a nice evening!

Greetings, Coert. :)

Wow, super, super nice Steve! The "Rare of the Rare" for sure!!! :bravo:

This has to be the nicest one in existence, of what, maybe 2 or 3 others that might still exist???

Congratulations! You've had one super-fantastic year of rare items added to your world-class collection! \:D/ =D>

Hello Alan ;
Thank you .
I know of only 1 other KAGGR # 1 / Fusilier Batl officer miter in a private collection .
This one showed up 46 years ago in an old Graf Klenau auction . A collector in Berlin bought it
and it was in his collection until this year .Talk about a long wait !
Come to visit me sometime

Wow! What a beautiful mitre! I don’t know how I missed the original post. 46 year wait is pretty impressive too, but well worth it in the end!

Beautiful, beautiful piece of headgear. And I thought I was doing well to get an enlisted fusilier miter.
