Hi everyone
I'm new on this forum.
I have the possibility to buy a M1867 Tschapka. In my opinion it'a good helmet but I wanted to know your advices and remarks about it.
The Tschapka is incomplete. Unfortunaly there's no markings on it
Thanks !
Best regards

Here is the regular Garde eagle on an enlisted Tschapka. The shape of the wings is very different. I have never seen an enlisted Garde Tschapka with an eagle like the one you showed us, which seems to come from a spike helmet. If this ever existed I am not aware of it. I used to own a GUR1 enlisted Tschapka, 1867 model, that bore the same kind of eagle as seen below.

It seems that there is a problem with the eagle.

In addition, on a 1867 model the plate should NEVER be affixed with metal loops; only screws.
Only one advice: run away...
