    Default Bahnpolizei badge?

    Hi guys,

    I got this in from a picker tonight, not sure exactly what it is but know it translates to Railway Police Officer or similar, and I reckon it's a breast badge maybe?

    Anyone seen one like this? Rough value?

    I can't find anything on t'internet apart from repros on eBay... Mmm, seems to be a chest eagle, but not sure if that would be on a cross strap?

    You are more likely to receive a response in the Imperial Germany Austo-Hungary Forum. I will move your thread there.

    I can't comment on originality or value, but allow me the observation that the crown is the Bavarian one.

    Thanks guys, it feels right, patina is nice, age seems Imperial. As I said, presuming it's a Railway Police Official breast badge, but first I've seen and it seems hard to find anything on t'internet.

    Thanks for that, appreciated. Any idea of value? It's a trader for buckles...

    It's non-military, so I'm not sure what the level of appeal would be. Of course, it's of the period and certainly interesting, but I have no idea what a value might be. You'd have to find the right person, so perhaps Ebay would be the best venue in order to have broader exposure.
