Original German Pre WWII Police Shako
Early 1927 produced police pattern Tschako in black
A great Polizei helmet (shako) as used by the metropolitan police, unlike some of the more common ones found trimmed in brown for rural police, this one is with black trim for the metropolitan police. Interior is fine, leather is supple and shows only light age. Complete with original leather chin strap. Overall it shows only minor wear, black lacquered finish still excellent.
The front flap has become detached and can easily be sewn back on
The flap is of course included
Maker marked and dated 1927
