Article about: Got this with a lot of German relics but I just can't seem to identify it. It seems too old for post war but I don't know if it's even German. Can anyone please help?

    I believe this is the earlier type cockade of Lippe...before they switched to the sew-on insignia...

    Hello,

    Hello,

    I think this is just a Bavarian cockade that has had the center cloth replaced. You will notice that the piece of wool is just a misshapen scrap as opposed to the round, paper-backed piece of wool you normally see on this type of officer's cockade. My guess is that this was converted after the war for other use.

    Thanks for your thoughts CCMJR. It's really a curious little critter.

    I believe this is a Baden officer's cap cockade
