Need a shell

Hi all, thoughts on this please. I’m looking for a shell to display a new wappen. The shape of this seems good but a few questions – is the stitching of the peak correct? Scales seem ok for an OR helmet but mounts are wrong and feldzeichen is officer (repro?)
Cheers
Jeremy

Yes, it's 900 Canadian but if the shell itself is an original, it's got a good shape. My main worry is the peak, should it not have been stitched and folded over?

I think the Kaiser Bunker mentions the stitch-less seam on the Front visor (pretty sure I read it there). None of the 3 tschapkas I own have stitches visible on the visor seam.

You are right, Tony's site has all the information on Tschapka's.

Therefore, I dont think the visor is correct on this shell.

Greetings, Coert.

Any tschapka that I have ever worked on, handled or seen, has always had the traditional stitchless front visor. This piece already has problems as noted, so stay clear of it.
