Austrian Pre WWI Enlisted Lancer Tschapka

Quantity: 
Price:  $795.00
 
Item #39711

Original era manufacture. Leather bodied Lancer Tschapka, with a red wool covered removable mortarboard. On the front is an impressive stamped brass wappen, and below a leather visor with brass edging.

On each side of the helmet are lion head bosses which hold the linked brass chinstrap in place. On the left side the strap is permanently affixed, while on the right, there is a hook which allows the chinstrap to be removed or affixed, for wear.

A near complete black leather liner, with several of the lace holes on the fingers pulled through from use. The interior of the helmet looks to have a varnished finish, with a white painted size number 1.

The red wool covered mortarboard is piped in thick white twisted cording, with a black painted canvas top. It is secured to the body of the helmet by a threaded steel rod and machined steel cylinder shaped nut. On the left front edge of the mortarboard is a slot opening for a field badge or plume. No moth issued to the wool covering, just normal age and wear.

A good looking old helmet in very sound condition.
