My Prussian Shako

Thanks to James for selling this to me. I am very happy with my first Shako. The pictures speak for themselves. If anyone can help me decipher the stamps inside that would be appreciated. I am pretty sure there is 1916 and a size 54 but the main stamp between those I don't understand. Looks like som...

Re: Repro Cockades

Thanks to more internet research I now know that these would be too big for an M15 pickelhaube. Live and learn! Good luck selling them - very good repros that's for sure.

As an ex military officer I can just see the German Hauptfeldwebel chewing out some soldier for having both the Fedlzeichen and the state kokarde on his shako. Probably so he would look good for his girlfriend.....

Shakos and Cockades

As an about to be new owner of a Prussian M15 Shako I am curious as to why they only have the national cockade on them and no state cockade on the other side? Is it because they often have those field badges attached on top?

Thanks.
