  1. Yes some really nice caps. If at one time you have a Bavarian Jaeger cap to spare please let me know.
  2. As with a lot of things it is a question of money. If you can spare the money buy an original period piece - there is nothing better and there will be no need to upgrade at a later date. But as these originals are very expensive (compared to most other medals) one may not have the money for it - in that case you can either not get a PLM (do you really need one?) or, if you must have one but do not have the cash for the real deal, you can go for a wearer's copy as the best alternative. In any case be patient most things turn up in one or two years. There is no shortage of original PLMs if you have the cash for it.
  3. @ chip - beautiful boards! I just marked the ones I would like to have with a cross. Also what exactly are those two boards which I have marked with a question mark? Please let me know. Thanks!
  4. @ Chris - Fantastic! Please show some more shots of your Bavarian Jaeger - I am looking for this type of tunic to add to my collection. I am not sure why but I find this blue green combo very attractive.
  5. That is a tunic for HR7. Is it original? I am not sure - the interior gives me pause. Attilas are not hard to come by so I would wait for another.
  6. Interesting to see two different models of the St. H. medals one late type the golden one and one middle type the silver one. Lt was probably a battlefield commission as he must have received the golden and silver medals as an NCO.
  7. Thanks Pep for reviving this thread. Some beautiful bars for sure. Would love to have one or two in this thread in my own collection.
  8. As for Bismarck I would need to check to be sure but I believe his titles were linked to various landed estates that were added to Prussia under Bismarck's 'reign' and given to him by German Emperor and with the titles came different crowns. I would assume that he started out with a five pointed crown being of an old noble family but without a title.
