I agree that they are private purchase, but they are not late war. The order to cease making this pattern came in January 1915.

Mike,

Excellent find! That's a rare bird and one that just about everyone who collects imperial insignia is missing. The only other example of this Kaiser cypher that I have is a simplified...

You got lucky if this is your first purchase and you know little about these caps. This is a good one.

I also like the fact that that marking in the liner (if the liner did indeed come with the helmet) is "K.B.A.G.", the wartime Bekleidungsamt of the Garde Korps. A happy coincidence?

The maker of the holster is "Carl Lottmann, Darmstadt". The L.Z.A. (Lederzuweisungsamt) stamp is that of the leather procurement board, in this case, of the (Jnspektion) center in Erfurt.

The "mask" with the elongated can shown in the photo is the "A.M.E. Gerät", normally worn with a pair of goggles which were carried in a separate waist pouch. I have two of these masks.

The D.G.R.M. marking makes all the difference. That would account for the non-issue features since it is a private purchase piece. So, I will cautiously change my assessment. I do like the the way...

I give it a thumbs down due to the non-typical unit marking, the lack of a manufacturer mark and the lack of any observable wear.

Of course there were pioneer regiments. Not only this one, but the Garde Res.Pion.Rgt., the 35th and 36th Pionier (Gas) Regiments.

Even commemorative medals that are enameled bring a premium price. I think you will need a specialist in this area to give you a more definitive answer. I agree that it is a postwar medal.

Previous assessments are correct in that it is a generic patriotic ribbon that could be used for a myriad of purposes.....commemorative medals, pins, etc.

Sorry, I can't read the last name on the tailor's label. It's too shredded. I can tell you that Franz was located in Kiel (one of the main ports for the imperial navy).

The ink stamp in the sleeve is from a costume company. I suspect that they put these very poor replicas of the insignia on the sleeve. Sorry to say they are not even close to real imperial era sleeve...

The document is for an EKII, not an EKI. Not that it makes any difference to the legitimacy of the document, but it does negate one of the complaints.

The name is Nette and it would not show up in the regular yearly Ranklisten or in the Ehren-Rangliste, because he was a Reserve officer (most likely promoted to that rank during the war). I don't own...

I agree with Pauke. This would be a typical type belt for officers on shore (landing troops) or front duty (Flandern Korps).
