The sailor's name is sewn in (Burau). Buttons appear to be brass and are all matching. They are Imperial style with the Kaiser's crown above the anchor. Chevron for Obermatrose" on left arm.

4. Imperial German WW1 leg wrappings, alo called gamaschen or putees. I bought these from the grandson of the soldier who wore them. He was drafted in 1915 and took part in the war until 1918. In 1918 he was awarded the Iron Cross 2nd class. He was in a field artillery regiment. Included are 2 photocopies of his papers, one detailing his campaigns and a copy of a photo of him. The putees are marked "R" and "L" for right and left. They are an olive high quality wool and are in great condition. Each measures over 7 feet long. One end has the hooks, the other end has the straps with the buckles to secure them when worn. Really great set that you rarely see available. $275

6.Imperial German Husar officer portrait rendered in watercolor (I think). I think this may be the same officer as the mounted one (Number 1, above). Light blue attila, black breeches, cavalry boots, saber and Pelzmütze on the table next to him. Very realistic style of artwork. Measures 21" high x 17" wide. Matt is worn and can easily be replaced. Superb Pre-WW1 Imperial officer portrait. Scarce. sold


 

 

 

 

 

7.Imperial staff officer shoulder board singles. These came back with a GI in WW2 along with ww2 era insignia. I think the "V"s denote staff office, probably the white one is for infantry, not sure of the blue one. Either, way, some rare boards,(blue board is sold, white one is available.) $75 each. * SALE $50* SOLD


 

 

8.German Imperial era naval officer cadet/Officer career insignia in gold bullion. These are for the cuff of the uniform and denote s engineering. There is one cuff badge and 2 smaller uncut badges on the original cloth. Nice examples and scarce. SOLD


 

 

 

 

9.Imperial German Navy enlisted man's sailors' cap. (sometimes called the "Donald Duck" cap). Great example in beautiful condition with no mothing. Lining is maker marked to "Oscar Höfer, Plauen", with Imperial crest at top of logo. All it needs is a cockade and a cap tally, both of which are easy to find. The sailor sewed a chinstrap on to keep from loosing it. Very rarely seen, especially in this condition. This type would be WWI and earlier. Size is marked "VI" under the sweatband for "56". Has it's original bamboo cap spring in the top. Superb example! SOLD


 

10.Imperial German WW1 Naval Marine officer's fore and aft hat. Uncommon cap that was used for dress and ceremonial occasions, usually worn with the frock coat. Made of a black beaverskin with a ribbon around the outside. Front and back have gold braid. Left side has gold bullion braiding and a ribbon in the German colors, along with a large Imperial Navy gold button with the Kaiser's crown over an anchor. Interior satin lining and sweatband are missing. Overall has some wear from use and age, but overall very good. Scarce.SOLD
