Prussian Line Uhlan Enlisted Tschapka with cords
Original and untouched
Prussian Line Uhlan Enlisted Man Tschapka circa 1914 with White Cotton Parade Cords. This pattern was first a wartime model Uhlan helmet that was modified with a metal non-detachable mortar board and top. Black lacquered leather body with pre-war quality brass trim. The helmet has excellent form and the proper turned down front visor. Exterior lacquer is in mint condition and still has nice sheen. No extra holes in the helmet body. Black enameled mortar board is in mint condition and still has knot and White Cotton Parade Cords (see photo). The helmet interior has a pre-war style flat tabbed leather headliner. Black leather lining is complete and appears a bit worn. The front plate is the small Uhlan sized Prussian Line Regiments Heraldic Eagle. There are no regimental markings found. Brass side posts with original M1894 rounded brass chinscales. Original Reichs cockade on right side. There is no field badge on helmet. Beautiful and all original wartime tschapka. All original, untouched and in near mint condition.
