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
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.
