THIRD REICH RURAL POLICE OTHER RANKS SHAKO HELMET.
This is a scarce and very nice example of a police shako helmet with brown leather work for the rural police which are very difficult to find as most have black leather work for the city police. The helmet has a brown patent leather top and visor with green cloth center band complete with large metal police eagle and swastika with metal cockade and it is complete with brown leather chin strap.The interior is also in extremely nice condition, the brown leather sweat band is in perfect condition and the interior of the helmet has traces of the original makers name. I probably see one brown example for every 10 black helmets so these brown examples are very scarce. [Condition: Exc++]
