You are so right about the books… only I was so excited about posting this busby, I didn't search for any info. Is that normal? I guess the excitement wins sometimes from common sence :-"

I was really surprised to find this busby still for sale… maybe there was something wrong that I didn’t see, maybe the price was not good, maybe… Anyway, I asked a g...

The rarest Tschapka I've ever seen

Well, I’ve been collecting since 1973 now (guess I’m getting really old) and I’ve never even seen one of these. One can imagine (or not) what went through my mind when I encountered this Tscapka.

It's indeed a very unusual pickelhaube, dut that's what makes it very intereting for me. When they would be all the same, it wouldn't be much of collecting I guess…
