Very unusual! Good you now show it here, too, after we discussed it yet on German SDA forum. Maybe someone here has an idea?!

My best guesses were the following two: A born Saxon who went to war with Austria as a mercenary (totally not unusual in mid 19th century), or a native Austrian who later went to live in the kingdom of Saxony. Due to precence and bar style I don't think this would have been worn by a Austrian in Austria.

This one was always one of my favorites. The solo cased SHM had a custom-made case to hold the bar

So it may be of interest for you, that he had English roots: His grandfather was Hugh Halkett, his granduncle Colin Halkett.
