German WW1 Field Artillery Faustriemen

German WW1 Field Artillery Saber Faustriemen

I just bought over 40 sword and bayonet knots from a very old collection.
They are all blacklight tested and are all rare originals.
This is one of only three faustriemen in the collection.
They are extremely hard to get, especially in mint condition!!

Mounted enlisted men and NCOs of the regular German army that carried a sword or sabre, such as the cavalry and field artillery, wore a sword knot known as the "Faustriemen." This consisted of a leather strap ending with a woven slide loop above a tasseled knot.

The loops and knots were color coded for the different batteries and abteilungs. The color numbers were as follows: white (1), red (2), yellow (3), blue (4), and green (5). The tassels were all white.
