Original German WWII Named Metropolitan Police Shako in Black - Size 59

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice Early WWII produced police pattern Tschako / Shako in black, which pre-dates the more common green wool body version. It has has very fine quality police eagle with aluminum cockade (often missing), though one of the securing nuts is missing from the back of the plate, along with the threaded post.

A great Polizei helmet (shako) as used by the metropolitan police, unlike some of the more common ones found in brown for rural police, this one is all black for the metropolitan police. Later these were replaced with felt covered Field Gray versions with brown or black trim.

Interior is fine, leather is supple and in excellent condition, and has the original leather string top tie. Complete with original leather chinstrap in good used condition. Overall it shows only hardly any wear, black lacquered finish still excellent. Vents are in very good condition, and both still have their working slide closure for the front vent on each side. Interior of helmet still has the original size marking of 59 on the leather liner. It also has the initials A S marked on the liner in the back, the initials of the officer it was issued to.

Overall a fine looking rare police Shako, ready to add to your collection!
