The 23rd Hussars is a genuine Firmin die badge and the 26th Hussars is a common fake.

Best,

Marcus

Hi CB, I am somewhat confused about what you are saying here:

a) the type 13 Hussar badge shown is a fake;
b) all badges of this type are fakes; in that case what does a 13 Hussar badge look like?
c) something else

Please clearify. Thanks.

Cheers, Tom

To summerize so far:

13 Hussars reproduction
26 Hussars reproduction

23 Hussars original

others original according to cbuehler

Can others please confirm originality of badges other than 13 and 26? Thanks!

Thanking everyone for helping out so far!

Enjoy your weekend.

This is a genuine one.

The badge was worn after WW1 in the cap as one period photo have proven. It was not a style commonly worn by ORs but was usually worn by officers.
