I agree with Mike's identifications for the most part, but I am sure that none of these shoulder straps date from the Franco Prussian war. The patterns and construction would put them in the late...

Unfortunately, six of the field gray straps are reproductions. Some of these are still presently offered on Ebay.de. If you would like me to point out which ones, I'd be happy to help.

Most of these you see were never issued and are in mint condition, likely due to their late introduction. As one would expect, Prussian examples are the most commonly seen, but all the major states...

I really like your mannequins as well!. Very sharp looking and your display room gives that old turn of the century vibe, which really works.

These are Beamtenstellvertreter boards. The bursting bomb insignia were added later to spice them up, but were not normally worn on this type board. We don't know the state, as there are no Beamten...

You might have an easier time of it if you look for items that are appropriate, time-wise to your Bluse. You didn't mention if it had a date, but a M15 or M17 canteen would fit better and also a grey...

Hello,

I was offered one of these issue Saxon KD89 issue swords earlier this year for $1,200, but the condition was quite a bit better than the one you have shown.

Regards,

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...

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.
