No wonder it's a :love::love: -- Rozet & Fischmeister are my favorite makers of Austro-Hungarian Orders! :cheers:

I think there's a photo of Archduke Eugen wearing one of these on his kepi.

Really nice... I'm just starting to appreciate these badges and want to start collecting a few.

hope you have deep pockets, charles.

..there is one up for bid right now; it is at $425 with two days left...

I was a beautiful one with enamel the other day for the edelweiss division. Awesome but too expensive for me.

Charles,

The Hoch u. Deutschmeister regiment and the Edelwei?korps badges are some of the most desirable and thus most expensive. In the last decade there has been a great influx of Italian collectors into WWI Austro-Hungarian collecting (for obvious reasons) and with the value of the Euro, most of the nicer badges have skyrocketed in value. This used to be a very affordable area to collect in, but like everything else, it has gotten out of reach for the average collector. I am fortunate to have started collecting cap badges in the 1980s when the average price was about $15.00. Today, I would venture to say that the average is about $45.00 or more.
