    Why I think so? Some years ago I got cap, which had absolutly no relation to the Leibhusaren. It looked absolutly identical to a cap of the 2.LHR. No big differences! But it was a cap for a member from a Prussian Landwehrverein. Because Leibhusaren caps are very popular caps, it is always possible that somebody added a skull to make it more interesting. We will never know it!

    At the end is only important that you like it.
    Thanks Sergeant.
    Yeah I really like it
    The seller is very honest Man had it for 20 years. Don't think he added skull, better think not
    Maybe will get more LHR stuff from him...
    Best regards
    Pete

        Most of these caps from veterans are missing one piping, the lower one.
        They are sometimes with a added skull on sale.

          And they were made with piping in different colors, too! But sometimes these caps from veterans have the correct piping, the correct colors etc.

          These are the dangerous caps! I wrote it, I owned such a cap.

              Oh my this suffered a LOT ... looks very cool tho! Thanks for showing this Stefan! reckon itsa once-ina-lifetime find! You found this yourself?

                  Braunschweiger Regiment

                  This little Totenköpfchen is from Braunschweiger 17. Regiment. Its made of copper, with a very worn silvery coating. The right bone is a little bend but not too much. The back looks full of oxidation, the prongs are good too. Very goodlooking little skull! Stefan told me, this version could be on empirial Mützen, or Weimar Mützen, or Wehrmacht 3.Reich Mützen.

                  The first shot, the background, I like it much, they seem a very lovely couple, second shot is of the back, has a background of the Braunschweiger Regiment 17er behind his machinegun, as shooter. Pretty big gun, no? A couple of officers behind the gunmen. At the back of the shot is written "Münster 1932". Rest of the shots, closeups.

                  Enjoy,

                            Nice one Robin Von Cramm I think was Herr Major Von Cramm? The family helped build this very good page I think? Or is yours another Cramm?

                            But they sure are awesome. Don't know who this is but I always like the below shot, the uniform sure looks so epically majestic!
