    Greetings Friends,
    Here's a rare Alpine Kaiser-Schuetzen Badge that I was able to score recently...
    The Motto of the Kaiserschuetzen-Regiment 1 reads "Sieg oder Tod im Alpenrot!"- "Victory or Death in the Alpine Glow"...(Alpenrot literally translates to "Alpine-Red")...
    Hope you like it as much as I do...
    cheers, Glenn

    Ok...let,go...

    Unfortunately i dont, have this kappenabzeichen in my collection...but i have contact my friend from Italy , and he will send me pictures from both side.

    The only reference i have is from books and memory when i see it...

    From the book: weight 5,86 g
    Measures 34,85mm # 34,92 mm
    On the back the mark of atelie GURSCHNER WIEN

    And the other two kappenabzeichen posted by Glenn.....sorry but i think also that are copy or fantasy item...in 25 years i never seen them, and belive i have see a lot of those kappenabzeichen!! Better than you buy new kappenabzeichen, buy some books of them and learn...

    Thi is an good on for 450 eur...600 USD... 5 years ago...https://www.sixbid.com/browse.html?a...557&lot=239904

    You're going to have to do better than that, friend...in fact, they appear identical aside from differing overall condition...A Photo of the reverse would be appreciated, nor are these official badges to begin with; Variants are to be expected...as for having studied the subject "better than me"- duly noted-...Your Italian Book states "Privately Produced" and "Possibly Commissioned by "...that's a fancy way of saying they don't know for sure...Posting "I don't like it" or "it's a fake" without some convincing evidence, -such as your own examples would be appreciated...
    Good Luck out there,
    cheers, Glenn
