Title Prussian Artillery officer's epaulette
Nationality German
Period 1915-18
Price £25.00

This replaced the silver bullion epaulettes as a war time economy measure, the black/white chevron denoting Prussian service, the red underlay the artillery branch, and the number that of the regiment. By virtue of the single pip, this is for an oberleutnant's rank. The insignia is zinc with a feldgrau wash.

There are several moth nips to the reverse and the cloth securing strap is missing. Overall, however, the condition is exellent for its age.

Very pleased with the cavalry sword, a very unusual piece.

The 3 medals have just arrived safely - very interesting. (From your description I was expecting ribbon to be dreadful; personally, I think that the "Russian Front" is beautifully 'aged'.)
