Hi Gents

these are all different examples

if the front is the same then the back is different. I was told recently that the thick pinned are older....

i don't know the ages and maybe the FF's don't belong? I couldn't get past thinking, (wistfully) somehow it stood for Franz Ferdinand. Don't laugh. 

As I've just recently read a post about a Rumanian Royal Cypher with initials Ff ive dug them out.

all bar one are metal

Hi gents

i know what the one of them is now...

Does anyone have any thoughts on any of the others please?

should I perhaps in fact be thinking of them as pre 1918? (ie try asking on other forum...)?

Hello Farkas , Idont laugh ,but i know that there were no cockades with F F for Franz Ferdinand . probably the cockades with the double F belonged to the Freiwillige Feuerwehr . The Firemen .

Hi both

thanks for having a look

and as always I do appreciate your help...

Bayern - I do like your suggestion for the FF’s. Makes sense. Ive got one of those old imperial German fireman helmets so I might tuck these away with that.

Christian - thanks for the date/period for these. They looked similar to more modern ones I have on a couple of caps from army surplus pickings.

thanks again

cheers

tony
