Austria-Hungary, often referred to as the Austro-Hungarian Empire or the Dual Monarchy, was a constitutional monarchy and great power in Central Europe between 1867 and 1918. It was formed with the Austro-Hungarian Compromise of 1867, and was dissolved following its defeat in the First World War.
The badge is 32 in diameter. This version was made by the Austrians and 10,000 were sent to German mountain troops. Like the originals this is made from one piece metal and finished in a white silver and gold wash. Our version is pretty much an exact copy and taken from an original!
The last few product pictures show our aged version worn on a mountain cap and a comparison between our new and aged badge.
