Battle of Jutland Cap tallies of the Imperial German forces

Recommended Posts

Greetings all,

Well as I was able to wrap up and complete my Kriegsmarine Zerstörer collection. I have decided to take on a new area of collecting.  I am going to collect the ships and perhaps the units tallies that took part in the Battle of Jutland. 

A monumental task and a very difficult one I believe, however I believe that with enough time, luck and money, this too can be achieved. 

I have some tallies on the way.  I am looking forward to sharing them with you all.

SMS Thueringen

SMS Oldenburg

SMS Posen

SMS Nassau

SMS Hannover

SMS Schlesien

SMS Muenchen

It is interesting to point out that umlauts or the ß symbol were not used with imperial tallies, so if the word had an umlaut like München or say Großer Kurfürst  it would be spelled fully out as Grosser Kurfuerst. 

I know many of you probably understand that however, there hasn't been an imperial Mützenband posting yet.  So.  I am leading the way on this forum.

 

All the best,

JustinG

Justin,

i  really look  forward  to  seeing  your  collection  grow. I  think  this is  a brilliant  collecting  field.  Good  luck. I  take it  these  are  quite  rare  to obtain? I  would like one  for  Derflinger at  some point  and  lay  call on  your  advice  when  I`m  ready  to  get one

All  the best

Jim

I too think it will be a challenge.  As these are all over 100 years old, there are more common ones but also several that are very very very very very rare.  

I will keep my eyes open and to the ground for a Derfflinger for you as well.  I agree, a tally with your grouping would be "icing on the cake".  

Best Regards,

JustinG

Thanks guys. 

Well, for other Mützenbänder collectors out there, they are all sharing a little chuckle as I have followed footsteps with many of them and dipped back to Imperial tallies as well.  I am very happy to have obtained these examples. 

Appreciate the comments!

I managed to pick up a lovely grouping.  Many are duplicates or other variants.  But I acquired some new ones in here.  The Rostock, Moltke, and Von Der Tann.

Thanks for looking.
