This is a very attractive group of buttons that are suitable for use on Husaren tunics. They are gilt-toned and measure 1″ in diameter. Husaren tunics used two different button types on both the tunic’s front and back. The barrel-type buttons are like toggles that slip through loops on the tunic fronts. The circular-type is referred to as a rosette button, and is used on both tunic fronts and reverses.
Regiments that wore gilt toned buttons were:
*Husaren-Regiment von Schill (1. Schlesisches) Nr 4
*Husaren-Regiment Graf Goetzen (2. Schlesisches) Nr 6
*Husaren-Regiment König Wilhelm I. (1. Rheinisches) Nr 7
*2. Rheinisches Husaren-Regiment Nr 9
*Magdeburgisches Husaren-Regiment Nr 10
*Braunschweigisches Husaren-Regiment Nr 17
*Königl. Sächs. Husaren-Regiment König Albert Nr 18
A total of eighteen buttons is available. For the sake of classification, I am describing them as low, medium, and high-finish. They all are in the same condition essentially, but this may help you pick the best finish to complete a tunic. [Let me add, buttons for Husaren tunics are VERY difficult to find].
*Low finish: We have FIVE.
*Medium finish: We have NINE.
*High finish: We have FOUR.
