    Officer's Pre-War Leib-Garde Hussar Busby

    Before sending off to consignment or auction, I thought I would first offer this lovely busby to members here. It is a pre-war, otter fur covered officer's busby of the elite Leib-Garde Hussars, and is complete to parade with its correct cords, plume, and bag (removable). More photos are...

    Pr. Model 1874/87 ammo pouches, 120th Regt.

    These are not a true exact pair, but they came together and are both marked to the 120th Infantry Regiment, (2nd Württemberg) "Emperor William, King of Prussia". The first example is impressed on the back "120.R.1875 F.B." and ink stamped in the lid "120.R.1888 F.B." The belt straps have been...

    "My American Cousin"

    Firstly, Season's Greetings! Many of you will have seen this helmet when it was first unearthed by Peter S., and you may have wondered where it went. Well, it travelled north of the border, although not too far, and now resides with a few of its relatives. Certainly the addition of the year...

    Help identifying Epaulettes

    Hi Folks, I have these mystery epaulettes I'm hoping to identify. Similar to German ones, with a dark blue backing, gilt mounts, and a pale yellow field. Each originally bore three stars. Any ideas? Cheers, Arran.

    Early Prussian General's Parade Tunic

    I've owned a few of these over the years, but this is by far the nicest of them! The fabric is fresh and bright, and the bullion embroidery retains most of its original gilding, which really makes it stand out. The size is reasonably large (about 42-43 chest) and there are loops for a long...

    Sending Private Messages

    Help! I have a message that's been sitting in my outbox that I'd like to send, but with no luck. I've had this problem before- it tells me the message is sent, but when I go to check its not in my sent messages, but left in my outbox. What am I doing wrong? Cheers, Arran.

    Help with a Sword

    Hi Gents, I recently received this sword in a trade, and its completely outside my realm of knowledge. It was suggested that it might be from Wurttemberg, but for all I know it could be some sort of South American export model. I've tried to get pics of the salient features and markings...

    Some Rare Tunics

    I'm parting with a couple of rare tunics. The General's tunic is attributed to General d Cavalry Von Wissendorf of the VII Army Corps 1887 Munster, but would benefit from further research. The GdC Gala tunic is a true rarity, with only a few surviving in collections. E-mail me for details and...

    Early General's Coatee?

    Hi Folks, I recently picked up these two. I know the one on the right is for a Prussian Civil Official, but what is the one on the left? The cuff and collars are the General's pattern as used by several different states, but beyond that I'm at a loss. The basic colour is a dark green...
