Hat badge 1WW

Recommended Posts

Is this a badge of Hungarian Homeland (Honved) from hat or cap? Size about 8 cm height. Is it from the period of 1914-18?

Regards

Hi Prem

just found this matches...IMG_3291.thumb.JPG.a17875d2f100637b8ad14732614b04ae.JPG

I would presume this is your plate in wear. It doesn't mention size in my book and 8cm is smaller,slightly, than a different shako  plate I have.

However, shako varied in height. I think with the help of any Gent who might know the height/size of this design ( ? ) it should be simple to confirm or disprove.

Nice piece either way
