Description  Imperial German Gefreiterís Collar Devices, Pair
Price $ 45.00/pair


Original set of Prussian Gefreiterís collar buttons for the Waffenrock uniform, in mint condition. Evidently these circular insignia--in combination with various patterns of Tresse--were used to denote several ranks, including the aforementioned lance corporal as well as officer candidates. This perfectly matched pair is of superbly die-struck gilded brass, depicting the Prussian eagle on the obverse and the makerís mark on the reverse: ďI.C. Maedicke * Berlin.Ē Separately affixed button shank. Diameter is 1Ē (2.5 cm.). Gilding is at 99.99%, and itís pretty obvious these discs were never worn.
