I managed to acquire a fair amount of items from a family estate.  Thought I would share one of the items from the group.  I have seen them before but not sure what they are called.  A silver Grenadiermütze for the departure, most likely transfer, of Oberstlieutenant Graf zu Rantzau from the Garde Regiment.

Hello!

Very nice!

In 1879 Major v. Rantzau was commander of II.Btl. of that regiment, and in 1883 he was à la suite in that regiment and commanded  the Infanterie-Lehr-Bataillon
