Ausweis Freikorps Pfeffer


Recommended Posts

Isn't yours with gold cord? Anyway, very nice. I feel these are grossly undervalued in Nimmergut's reference. They really don't turn up very often at all. But, I guess i shouldn't complain since I picked it up for less than even the current low catalogue price.

Thanks Destruction,

I didn´t even know that different classes exist.

Now I´ve to check the Militärpaß.

Andreas,

It was pretty complicated. Fangschnur of VII. Armee-Korps (FK Duesseldorf, Lichtschlag etc) had only 2 classes, usual green and green with additional silver cord (for 3 and 9 months). Pfeffer went further. He used two classes, but also added one more, with black cord, making it in 3 grades (for FK Pfeffer only).

Best!

Did you mean silver cord? This one for sure is black, we compared it to silver one closely.

Yep, the price was good, congrats! I had a huge desire to buy it myself, to be honest :)

Brian,

The one with black cord is described by Klietmann. Since it was done based on his writings to Pfeffer himself, I hope we can trust him in this very case.

I was thinkin about silver grade as well first, but we did compare it to a silver one, and no--it's black. Does not look like oxidation.

Best!
