:thumb up: Very nice shako with very clear makers stamp, congrats!

Next time, if I may suggest, could you downsize your pictures a little so they can fit inside my screen?
It will look alot better that way too.

An excellent tschako! Very nice to have the original feldzeichen, kokarde and chin strap. These pieces are often missing on what we see for sale in N America. As I have said before...can you imagine spending your work day stitching feldzeichen by hand hour after hour?? :(

thanks all for the fine comments
i think that it might everywhere in the world be a little hard to find a complete and untoutcht helmet
i have seen a lot of helmets with mixed parts or even just the shel on it one
you just have to be patient enough and wait until a complete one crosses your path

I've been interested in Imperial Helmets for over 50 years, I think I can count on one hand the number of complete original tschako I've seen for sale here.
