Cockades, states

Recommended Posts

Just arrived today - two officer cockades:

Mecklenburg-Schwerin or Mecklenburg-Strelitz (red/gold/blue)

Oldenburg (red/blue)

Both never been fitted to a cap, almost mint apart from storage marks, scratches, esp. to Oldenburg example



Various cockades and buttons, Prussia,
Baden or Lippe, Reserve,
Hamburg or Lübeck


Baden, Landwehr cockade, 29mm. Abreviated motto: M.Gott f.Fürst u.Vaterl.   Red paint on hollow ring completely missing. Cleaned with hot soapy water, as heavily oxidised.
The cross to the centre is silver coloured, but appears gold in photo. Holes for attaching to cap. Colour to be restored


A similar piece in comparison. (internet photo)


Now restored.
