Just wondering if anyone could enlighten me as to the background for these officer cockades with card centres?
That’s correct. But according my informations this type came up for officers around 1915. Nevertheles, I have to correct the source where I have my informations from. I wrote an Essay about cockades for myself from various sources, when I started interesting for Pickelhaube. Unfortunately I lost the source and thought it was from a french book too, where I got other informations from, but it was an entry in a French Forum of our dear member clovis57. Hope he can tell us if he knows a book where the informations are fromThere is an officer Reichs kokarde with the center and 2 smaller holes for sale right now on A of K. To me this is designed for the M91 post and prongs to go through the kokarde and into the helmet.
