Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Early 1934-1935 produced police pattern Tschako in black that pre-dates the more common green wool body version. This example was made and marked by Friedrich Becker & Co. K.G of Berlin. 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. The  NSDAP helmet plate was removed and replaced by a post war version. This helmet plate is from the Nordrhein-Westfalen (North Rhine-Westphalia) region.

Overall it shows only minor wear, black lacquered finish still excellent. Vents are perfect condition with working slide closure. Overall a fine looking rare police Shako that could be converted back to its WWII look.
