GERMANY – TSCHAPKA – NCO/ONE YEAR VOLUNTEER – PRIVATE PURCHASE – 2. GARDE-ULANEN-REGIMENT
This is a private purchase tschapka for an NCO or a One Year Volunteer in 2. Garde-Ulanen-Regiment. This regiment was raised in 1819 and was garrisoned in Berlin. It was attached to the Garde-Korps.
The leather body of this helmet shows some spidering and a bad patch above the left tip of the Eagle and we will show this trouble spot in the attached photographs. The furniture of the tschapka is brass. There is a correct NCO Reich kokarde on the right side of the helmet. A correct Prussian feldzeichen is also included.
As we look at the interior we see a well used with sweat stains but complete brown leather sweatband. Attached to that is a complete beige silk liner which while showing no tears or rips does show some staining. Underneath the silk liner we see what we should see.
This is an average conditioned tschapka and is value priced for this Garde-Regiment.
