    Hi John, the pipe belonged to a former member of 7th Kompanie/40th Fusilier Regiment "Prince Karl-Anton von Hohenzollern", hence the "40" on the shoulder strap painted on the bowl of the pipe. The text on the pipe states it was it gift from his friends in the Regt.

    Some history about the Regt can be found here. I have added a translation of the page into English:

    I cannot comment on originality as these Reservist type items are right outside my area of collecting

    Cheers, Ade.
