PRUSSIA – EPAULETTS – MAJOR – INFANTERIE-REGIMENT Nr 14

SKU: 23-75

$775.00

This is an excellent pair of dress epaulettes (banjo style) for a Major who served in Infanterie-Regiment Graf Schwerin (3. Pommersches) Nr 14. The regiment was raised in 1813. It was garrisoned at Bromberg, where it was assigned to the II. Armeekorps. As a Major, the original owner would have been either a Bataillon commander or perhaps on regimental staff. Each of these massive epaulettes has a white background that is somewhat faded from age. Each displays the regiment’s number in gilt. Some light moth tracking shows on one of the epaulettes. This is in no way detractive to their overall presentation. As these are very large epaulettes, the storage carton is far deeper than those we see for a Leutnant/Oberleutnant/Hauptman’s epaulettes. The epaulettes are neatly secured in the carton with a ribbon. It is grand pair of epaulettes for a well-known regiment. IR Nr 14 had a wonderful record, beginning with the Napoleonic Wars, that extended into the Franco-Prussian War and later, WW I. You should not pass this chance to own a bit of their history.
