    • It doesn't look like brass in the picture. Try a magnet - I'm quite sure it is iron
    • Yes I though it could be a weight of some kind but it was the markings on it that intrigued me, it weighs just under an ounce and the size of an old half penny and 4mm deep it could be brass made or iron.
    • Looks very interesting. No idea what it could be. Could it be something to do with ordonnance, a powder measure or weight? You should try to enquire at some museums. I'm sure somebody would know. Also the markings should be some indication. Apparently of cast iron?
    • Yesterday, the museum had a visit from a relative of Otto Telschow (27. Februar 1876 in Wittenberge; † 31. Mai 1945 in Lüneburg) was the son of a justice official and started as a scholar at the Königlich Preußisches Militär-Knaben-Erziehungsinstitut in Schloß Annaburg at Wittenberg. He was an Unteroffizier in Husaren-Regiment 15 from 1898 till 1902 and had been previously with Ulanen-Regiment 2** in Saarebourg from 1893 till 1897. Up till the outbreak of war in 1914 he had been a policeman. He was then drafted as a Feldlazarett-Inspekteur and saw service 1914-17 at the front in in Flanders, Rumania and the Baltic. As from end of 1917 till late 1918 he was Lazarett-Oberinspekteur in Reservelazarett III in Bremen. He was married to Clara Jenny Philippine Gevert. At the end of WW1 he was an administration official with the Polizeibehörde Hamburg, as Polizei-Obersekretär. In 1942, as Gauleiter of Ost-Hannover, he was given the former landed Estate in Lenau of the industrialist Richard Toepffer and 40 acres of land from the state as a gift. On these grounds he built a bunker, parts of which still remain. Telschow fled from his villa in the Lüneburger Schießgrabenstraße 8/9 after the entry of British forces. He was found in a Jagdschloß near Dahlenburg and arrested and attempted suicide, and died of the result of this on 31. May 1945. (source: Wikipedia)
      ** cannot be Ulanen-Regt.2, in Saarebourg stood Ulanen-Regt.11 and 15
