 ADD TO CART

These bayonet/side arm knots (troddeln) were introduced into the Prussian Army in 1808. The variant colours indicate the particular battalion and company to which the wearer belonged. They continued to be worn (normally wrapped round the frog) in the Weimar era and then in the Third Reich when the loose knot assumed a closed, barrel shaped form.

This example is in pristine condition, hence the price. The survival rate of these Imperial souvenirs was low, as against the Third Reich types which are found with much greater frequency.
