    That’s the clover makers mark of BSW.

    Brüder Schneider, Wien.

    A nice clear example.


    I don’t know much about them, I have looked previously for information about them for myself.
    I do know they did continue business after the war and were used considerably after Austria’s annexation to produce particularly luftwaffe badges.

    Do you all think this a ww1 war piece or post war for veterans?


    Definitely 1918 or earlier, it is an ‘Austrian’ qualification badge for KuK artillery 👍


    Just found this 👇


    Austro - Hungarian Empire: Marksmanship Performance (Qualification) Badge of the KuK Artillery for 1st Gunners. With the Austrian Crown, crossed cannons and a target in the center.

    The badge was instituted in 1888 by Kaiser Franz Joseph, while in 1913 a similar badge, with the Hungarian crown, was adopted for the Hungarian Artillery.

    So 1888 - 1918…
