  1. I'm sure these buttons are okay, but do be warned that they are being reproduced. The last pair of boards that I bought had reproduction buttons on them.
  2. Same three holes on the back and same catch as the black Bavarian buckle that I showed above. Interesting.
  3. Henk, Yes, you may have a picture. Give me your e-mail address and I will make a scan for you. I also have an enlisted man's H.R.15 shoulder strap for the mounted troops overcoat. It is blue with a yellow cypher and crown and a gray cloth backing material.
  4. Very nice! Here is one with a field cover dated 1914. The chinstrap is a reproduction.
  5. The answer is that a WWI Austrian field cap is worth at lot of money these days.
  6. Foreign Legion enlisted man's private purchase cap. This came in a lot from a WWI American pilot along with a French trench knife, but I have been told that it is more like a WWII style cap. The side buttons are the correct pattern for the Foreign Legion.
  7. Here is the 1907 pattern for enlisted Hessen personnel.
  8. The "St.A." is a common mark used in caps. I believe it has something to do with with the overseeing manufacturing district, in this case Sonnenburg. I have caps with the same stamps. Here is a M1907 feldgrau cap of the same ilk. You can see the "St.A." mark at the top of the lining. The cap is also marked to the Garde Korps 1909 and the Feld-Luftschiff-Abteilung Nr.1.
  9. Some additional WWI era Adrians from my collection.
  10. It is my contention is that the Bavarians just continued to use their hardware stocks on hand for the Bluse in 1916. Once this stock was depleted, they commenced with the use of the universal buttons decreed on March 1916. I have a second Bavarian Bluse dated 1917 and it has the universal crown buttons. I would enjoy seeing your Bavarian Bluse if you are inclined to show it.
  11. Here are my enlisted M1915 Husaren shoulder cords with regimental cyphers. These are issue examples. The strap on the jacket above is a private purchase piece.
