In 1912, the Braunschweig pattern Totenkopf was awarded to the Braunschweigisches Infanterie-Regt. Nr.92. Prior to this it was also worn by Braunschweigisches Husaren-Regt. Nr.17 (Brunswick Hussar Regiment 17 - Cavalry Regiment).
The Braunschweig pattern Totenkopf came in two different patterns: a flat issued pattern and a three dimensional private purchase pattern. There were several numerous versions of the flat badge and numerous versions of the private purchase badge.
In WW2 the badge was worn by various units of Infantry regiment 17 and by some units of the Reiter-regiment 13 and all units of the 41'st Cavalry regiment from the 4th Cavalry Division.
The badge we are offering is an early version of the private purchase Brunswick badge. It is made of silver lacquered metal and is aged condition. It is copied from an original and is of museum quality, with two attachment pins just like the originals.
