A very nice Third Reich Gendarmerie officer's shako. Minor signs of wear.
Complete with it full and originally attached aluminum insignia! Hand-embroidered officer's cockade with black felt backing. Fine "thick" officer's pattern shako eagle. All prongs in place. Fine officer's chin strap.
Fine soft leather with original cord. "Gend.1937" unit marked and dated. EREL maker marked to the dome. "57 1/2" size marked.
Minor tiny moth bites to the green felt. In fact, quite hard to see.
