MINIATURE – KAISER WILHELM II’S ANNUAL INFANTRY REGIMENT SHOOTING PRIZE – 1905 – PRUSSIA

SKU: 29-68

$95.00

This is a miniature which was worn on a soldier’s tie chain. The miniature is for the infantry’s annual regimental shooting competition. Each year a shooting competition for infantry/cavalry and artillery regiments was held within the German Army. The regiments that compiled the best records received a special prize from the Kaiser. The prize was in the form of a sleeve badge, which was proudly worn by the regiment’s members (enlisted and NCO). The miniature replicates the 1905 badge. It appears at one time the crown may have snapped off, then was re-soldered back into place. I have NEVER seen such an example before.
