M15 Prussian Jäger Tschako.

Post by coert65 » Sun Feb 18, 2018 9:29 am

Hi guys, today I bought a Prussian Jäger Tschako, from a fellow collector I know.
Liner has dry-rot, there are only a size mark, 55,5, and a large oval makersmark to be seen
on it, except for some pencil marks written in it. It has a nice exterior.

Comments are very welcome, and thanks for looking at it.
Have a nice sunday all.

Greetings, Coert :)

Nice shakos.

I like them almost as much as spikes.

Thanks guy's!

I also like them a lot, a Jäger Tschako was on my wish-list for a long time.
Next sunday I am going to buy a Felthaube, which I saw at the sellers house.
Not perfect but fully original. I am officially lost...

Greetings, Coert.

Photo's restored, and a little update.
On the last picture you see a chinstrap which was not correct, I replaced it with the M15 strap you see in the first picture.

Have a nice sunday,
Greetings, Coert :)

Nice item
Just started blindfolded archery, best thing I've ever done, if you've not tried it. You don't know what your missing.

Congrats - prefer pickelhaubes though however I would love to own an officer JB 14 tschako.
