Imp. Russian badge to be identified


Recommended Posts

Hello All.

Just bought some interesting miniatures, will be shown later when received.

The Seller have this badge as well and would be happy to get it identified, I cannot help, but I'm sure someone here will know, Nick?

Further, could anyone add a few words on assumed originality?

Regards, Lars

Couldn`t care less about dealers problems ...

For you Lars ;)

What we have here is

Badge of the 17th Nizhnii-Novgorod Dragoon Regiment of His Majesty
Gold Cavcasian cross covered in black matt enamel. In the centre of the cross is a circular gold medallion covered in raspberry enamel with the gold abbreviation НЕВП/NHMR (Nizhnii-Novgorod Regiment of His Majesty). Emperors Peter I and Nicholas II monograms beneath gold Imperial crowns.
Established in 1908.
By these photos badge looks promising.
