Item No.: 8609 Price : SOLD
Description :
This is a WWI grouping from the Saxon Life Guards Regiment. It consists of the tunic, belt, and the Model 1895 Pickelhaube. The tunic is piped in red with the silver buttons of the regiment. The buttons on the shoulder boards are engraved with the number "4". The belt buckle bears the phrase "Providenciae Memor", Latin for "Providence Remember". This was the official motto of the Kingdom of Saxony. The Model 1895 Pickelhaube has the Saxon Front Plate with a nickel silver starburst and a Tombak center shield. This was a characteristic of the Life Guards, reversed from the standard silver shield on a Tombak star. The entire set is in excellent condition. The tunic of a corporal is beautiful with no visible damage or mothing. The belt and buckle are excellent as well. The Pickelhaube is in excellent condition, but has a small shrapnel strike on the spike. The tiny shell fragment penetrated the spike, passed through and dented the other side. This is not an identified set. The items were grouped together, but are 100% correct and original. This is a superb WWI ensemble of the Sachsen Life Guards that will enhance any collection. Stock no. 22834
