SKU: 23-319

$995.00

Prussia’s 3. Lothringisches Infanterie-Regiment Nr 135 was founded in 1887. It was garrisoned at Diedenhofen. It was attached to the XVI. ArmeeKorps when WW I began, but when it was founded it had been assigned to the XV. ArmeeKorps. The regiment had a thirty-one-year history from its founding until it was disbanded in 1918. Today we are offering a pair of the regimental commanding officer’s epaulettes (he was an oberst). The epaulettes display a gilt moon around their edges. An oberst’s twin pips and the regimental designation appear on each one, overlaid upon brilliant yellow felt. Sumptuous silver bullion tassels cascade down from their sides. Everything that can be seen on the obverse is in MINT condition. The reverse, however, displays substantial mothing on its red felt backing material. Both epaulettes are housed on a pedestal within a storage box. The box is in better than average condition. Its upper lid reveals that the epaulettes came from a Hessen-Cassel military effects firm. It would make a fine addition to any collection.
