Between 2015 and 2018 I found several buttons of USA uniforms in the former German Southwest Africa. Always in contact with German Schutztruppe and fights with natives.
Also, I found 2 US cartridge cases.
My question: does anyone know anything about US military observers or instructors in German South West Africa between 1904-1908?
Battlefield Gross Barmen, Herero revolt (19.02.1904). Large button diameter 23 mm. Back cover with embossing: New York Button
