A neat little piece here! It is made of three pieces, two are made of a nickel silver alloy one being die struck the other die stamped and a piece of white/yellow cloth, along with red enamel work. The obverse features a centrally placed horse on a red enamel backing (the unofficial civil flag until 1837) above a maltese style cross that reads: "Suscipere et Finire Nec Aspera Terrent" (support and limit the hardships do not deter us) and two crossed flags. This is attached to a piece of yellow and white cloth (newly adopted flag colors 1837) with a black printed inscription that reads: "Nannoverscher Kriegerverein M. f. N. Hildesheim". Attached to the bottom of the cloth is a kilt/bag pattern. The reverse shows where the cloth is held in place and is also maker marked "L & W Hannover". There is a hole to the top. A neat early piece! Never owned one before!
