Mystery Figure Stripped

I have managed to strip most of the paint from the figure, which revealed some interesting features:

 Looks like a tassel on the right side of the shako:
Closer view:
Is this a skull badge?

Rear view:
I still can't make up my mind - he could be a Brunswicker with some inaccuracies thrown in!


  1. I was thinking that the skull badge indicates Brunswicker, but then it occurred to me he might well be Prussian. Might be worth looking into.

  2. I think he is a Brunswick hussar. That's based on the shako plaque and also that I don't think the Brunswick hussars wore the pelisse, which I would expect a Prussian hussar to wear!
