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


Original set of Prussian Gefreiterís collar buttons for the Feldbluse, in excellent condition. Evidently these circular insignia--in combination with various arrangements of Tresse--were used to denote several ranks, including the aforementioned lance corporal as well as officer candidates. This perfectly matched pair is of nicely die-struck steel or zinc, depicting the Prussian eagle on the obverse and the makerís mark on the reverse: ďI.C.M. / Berlin.Ē Separately affixed button shank. Diameter is 1Ē (2.5 cm.). Exterior finish has the appearance of mottled, matte silver and it appears unlikely that these insignia were ever worn.
