Kinder Tschapkas

Post by J.LeBrasseur » Thu Mar 19, 2020 4:01 pm

Here are a couple examples of kinder Tschapkas, these are both cardboard types which is amazing that they survived this long.

the one on the right is almost all cardboard including the scales Kokarden etc.

The white cord on the right example is a replacement.

the Raabatte on the left one is painted, where the one on the right is a separate piece of cardboard.

thanks

James

Dear All
I would like to share some photos of one of these Tschapka found in one theatre here in Italy few years ago.
I sold this helmet a few weeks ago to a French collector.
all the best
