    Hi Didier,

    It's a Prussian Standard Bearers Gorget for an Uhlan regiment (Cavalry). These items are heavily reproduced and retail at around $140-$160, so be careful if your considering buying it, as genuine ones go for a few thousand bucks. And no, I don't know the difference either!!

    The quality appears a bit off to me though, perhaps Oradour (Steve) can help.

    Regards, Ned.

    The letters are 'WR' or in latin 'Wilhelmus Rex' the cypher for Kaiser Wilhelm.
