  1. I really hope you are right! Another thing that makes me wonder is the price.

    An original one from Leibregiment for under 200€... a little bit cheap, isn´t it?

    But I don´t want to make it bad. Let´s wait til it arrives!

    What would you say to the king? I´m really not sure, who he is

    Here is another site:


  2. What about the picture inside the Stein?

    Ludwig II died in 1886: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludwig_II_of_Bavaria

    Otto didn´t rule because of illness: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otto_of_Bavaria

    Luitpold? : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luitpold,_Prince_Regent_of_Bavaria

    What, if the Stein is a fake? A have seen faked Steins with faked names before...

    A lot of fakes had the picture of Ludwig II:


    "Gerne wird auch das Portrait vom Bayernkönig Ludwig II. als Bodenbild bei Kopien verwendet. "

    (The portrait of the Bavarian King Ludwig II is also often used as a base picture for copies.)

    I wonder that at the bottom is only a thin red line instead the blue/white colours.

    Compare your Stein with the Stein in chapter 2.) Die Form des Krug Henkels

    It looks similar...

    Unfortunately there are a few facts against an original one.

    1) Ludwig II (if he is it)

    2) no blue/white stripes

    3) no match with the name

    4) there are no photos from the inside of the lid. The inside must be brighter than the outside

    5) no list of comrades from the company. No list = no check... I have three Steins. Each has a list

    ( compare here):




  3. Hello!

    I cheked your photo again. I was wrong with Marinekorps.

    It´s a simple fieldgrey naval uniform since April 15, 1921. (Marine-Verordnungsblatt Nr.10)

    "Collar with Double-braidings like the early See-Bataillon, without collar-tabs."

    All NCO and EM had those crossed anchors on ther shoulder-straps.

    The crossed anchors for helmsmen were worn as an oval patch upon the upper arm


  4. Hello.

    We see an uniform of Jäger-Regiment zu Pferde N°13 from Saarlouis (XVI.Army Corps).

    He also wears an Oldenburg Friedrich-August Cross:


    His rank is Oberleutnant (1 star)

    The ranklist of honour had two officers of that regiment, who served in the air service later in the war.

    Leutnant Neubaur in Flieger-Abt.8, wounded August 8, 1914, died August 21, 1914 in Sennheim (too early, so he won´t be it)

    Leutnant Schönberg in Flieger-Abt. (A) 254, missed April 14, 1917.

    But he could also be a reserve-officer. Those were not listed in the ranklist of honour.

    What´s the badge on his right side? Another pilot badge?

  5. Kraus writes, that first the Alpenkorps was equipped with the "Gebirgshose". (17.8.11915). The Sturmbataillone recieved their leather-patched-trousers with ordre from 2.1.1917 (Kraus, vol. I, page 560).

    You wrote, a couple of photos were from 1918. In may 1918, the Gen.Kdo.59 was in the area of Cirey.

    In Sept./Nov. 1918 the Armee-Abteilung A was:

    VII.AK, XV.RK, Gen.Kdo.59, austrian IX.AK

    Units since 15.9.1918

    13.ID (until 15.9.1918), 75.RD (7.10.-5.11.1918), 61.Ldw.Brig., 21.LD, 96.ID, 92.Res.Jg.Brig., 25.ID (18.-25.9.1918), 301.ID, 39.RD, hungarian 37.Honved-Div.

    What about a close-up of the helmet cover in #204, please?
