Hi Rick,

It looks very much like a Freikorps badge: Bug-Stern der Schutztruppe Bug (Niemann's calogue 2.01.16), since the visor cap with the cocarde and wreath is definitely post WWI, maybe mid-late twenties??? ...just only my guess.

Ciao,

Claudio

Claudio, Rick,

Oberstleutnant Ernst Kaether is wearing the uniform of Reichswehr-Infanterie-Regiment 29. The photograph dates from late 1919 to late 1920.

Regards

Glenn

I mean it looks like this... Germans were quite quick and prolific in creating new freikorps' badges! Maybe this was already around in 1920! Could be?

Certainly could be this one.
