    Description

    Prussian Uhlan Reserve Officers' Tschapka.


    Lacquered leather body with silver-trimmed round front visor. The eagle front plate has been painted a dull blue/gray, presumably to lessen the visibility of the original silver. A gilt reservist cross is mounted to the eagle. No additional holes are present in the helmet body. The single Reichs cockade is mounted beneath slightly convex gilt chinscales held by simple rosette bosses. The helmet is topped with a fixed leather mortar board complete with the officer's bullion field badge. The officer-style liner features a 2 ½-inch leather sweatband and buff silk headliner. A name is written in ink on the silk headliner.

    Condition: Very good. Modest crazing and wear to the exterior finish; liner dirty from wear. From the collection of J.T. Hamrick, M.D.
