    Default Unit Marking ID Needed on 1914 Danzig Kar98 Mauser

    Hello everyone,

    I picked up a very nice Danzig Kar98 Mauser dated 1914/15 today. On the butt plate there is a crossed out unit marking that I need help ID'ing. It is:

    K.R.84.2.E.68.

    Any info on this marking would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Are you sure that it is K.R.84 and not K.R.8? K.R.84.2.E.68. doesn't make sense as there were only eight numbered Kurassiere Regiments. The 2.E. indicates Zweiter Eskadron (2nd Squadron) which tells you it was a mounted unit i.e. cavalry or train.

    Hi habicht,

    It's 84, for sure. Here is a pic of the marking, maybe there was something that I left out.

    Thanks!
