John,

Unfortunately the E-Bay seller hasn't a clue as to what he is hence the write-up.

The cdv shows a other-rank of a Hussar regiment, late 1870's. For 'kepi' read forage-cap; for 'officers jacket' read Hussars frogged tunic, and as far as I knew a 'swizzle stick' is what you stir a cocktail with, that's a walking-out cane also known as a swagger-stick.

Regards,

JY
