Bavarian Regimental Shooting Prize

I just received this beautiful 5th place shooting prize to an Infantrist Hirner of the 11th company of Kgl. Bayer. 20. Infanterie-Regiment Prinz Rupprecht in 1910 (photos from the seller).

I love these things. That is a beautiful Krug. Do you have a Bayern Haube to display beside it? Or a shoulder strap? Or, (in my world) both?

Gee, Tony, I wish! I only own two other Bayern items, a miniature 3-medal bar that has a BVK3 w/crown & swords and a full size single, un-mounted, BVK3 w/crown & swords. I'm afraid Hauben are out of my price range, but I hadn't thought of a shoulder strap, perhaps I'll try to get one to go with the Krug and medals.

By the way, I bought the krug from a dealer you recommended, Advance Guard Militaria. He was very nice, easy to work with, and I love that he will allow layaway!

Thanks, Gus. Some time ago Tony mentioned AGM in a thread as being a good dealer. I went to the site and saw that Krug and fell in LOVE! Unfortunately I didn't have the extra money at that time to buy it and I was a bit timid about asking about layaway. Then it vanished from the catalog and I thought it'd been sold. A week or two later it re-appeared and I just couldn't let it go so I sent Jeff an e-mail offering a payment plan and he e-mailed me right back and said okay.

It's a very beautiful piece.

I love these -- reservist1 has taught me a great deal. The thing I like the most is his one that has a mechanical guard outfit. After that I like the glass mugs like this. He says they are less sought-after by collectors but I absolutely absolutely absolutely love them. I preferred the ones with the helmet tops but the ones with the engraving like yours are just so cool. I can see how reservist1 now has a house full of these!

Joe,

Another hobby/interest of mine is heraldry. The main reason I fell in love with this Krug was the royal Bavarian coat of arms on the lid! Another reason was the little lion sitting on the handle.

I love the Heraldry and royalty also. I have added a bunch of pictures of royalty to my map and now I have lost all the files! If number two son ever wakes up... the problem I have is too many interests! But items like yours keep the interest very high.
