On Hold


A very clean example of a Third Reich Police NCO shako for the Schutzpolizei, or Order Police. The police green wool body is in excellent condition and free of the moth damage or stains that are frequently encountered on these shakos. The black leather visors and top show the typical fine age crazing that is normally seen on these pieces of headgear. The shako is complete with its interior liner, drawstring, and chin strap. The liner appears ot have two names written on it. The interior dome of the shako bears the Eral manufacturer decal as well as the distributor decal of Robert Lubstein of Berlin. The interior of the liner is dated 1937. The removable aluminum cockade shows wear and indentations. The reverse of the cockade is also dated 1937. Overall excellent service used condition.
