I have posted this piece previously but now that we have a section devoted to the busby, the photos and description belong here. A trooper busby marked to HR 20. King of Saxe 3 Husaren Regt. Nr 20, formed 1910, Headquarters: Bautzen, XII A K. The musicians parade plume which is not quite regulation, came with the piece and is real horse hair. The piece is also marked and dated under "la flamme". The photos:

The Saxe feldzeichen is hand stitched as is correct. The seal fur is in fantastic shape, no missing hair. The wappen shield has a light silver wash over brass metal. The original chin strap is also in excellent condition. I do not feel that this piece was ever issued.

Side view under la flamme which shows how the seal hide is stitched together. I have no explanation as to the brightness of these fittings, perhaps they are plated? The cane construction under the seal skin is correct and looks original, it has been shown previously. It is very faint, but in natural light, I see the date 1918 stamped under the 20 HR shown here.

The only thing that I notice is the " peg "
at the end of the Fangschnur .

Thanks guys, Steve I have no explanation for that. This is exactly how it came to me when I bought it. The dealer actually thought it might be a repro/fake because it was in such great condition and it was priced accordingly. So, I got a bargain on this one, for once, which every collector deserves! This is one of my most treasured pieces in my collection.

Looking great!

The date of 1918 might indicate that is was supposed to be worn with the friedensuniform.

I've seen more of these "pale" fittings, they look a lot like anodized aluminum...

Brian ;
Nothing to be concerned about
IF the little peg is incorrect
then that makes the helmet
99.9 % correct
I would not know how to correct that
even if not correct
that "log " as I remember
is part of the end of the Fangschnur
How could it be added , anyway ?

It is always nice to see this beautiful busby again, Brian. Probably the most difficult headgear to be found in good condition, especially enlisted examples. Have you ever restored one?
