Hi Eric,

N is probably for Napoleon (Napoleon the 1st). But who knows....

Cheers.

Eric,

Each year, there is a big reenacting party in the Czech Republic; I am not too sure, but I believe that it is the Austerlitz battle. These are most likely to come from there.

Hi to all,

Would reenacting groups already exist in the 20/30s ? I honestly don't know... Interesting..

Cheers.

Christophe,

What make you say that this pin is from the 1920~30's? Looks more recent to me.

Re-enacting groups were HUGE at the time of the Centennial, before the First World War. Many European army units also celebrated 100th birthdays in those years and produced ceremonial Napoleonic replica uniforms.

(I colorized this scan for Tom Y :rolleyes: )

so when do some of you guys think this pin was made?

p.s. just curious: are you guys familiar with tinnies made by czech makers during the 20/30/40s? personally, i think the detail, design, and quality of material blows away the german makers from the 30/40s. but that's another story best saved for another time, i guess...sorry for the tangent!

cheers!
