    Default The Red, White, & Black!

    Ladies & Gentlemen, I present for your review the 3 Parade Dress Tschakos for the Polizei. The Parade Dress Paradebusch was authorized in 1937 for all Polizei NCO's & Officers. Black horse hair was worn for NCO's; white buffalo hair for Officers; & the rarest of all, red horse hair for Police bandsmen:

    This Shako has black trim, meaning the NCO was a member of the Schutzpolizei:

    This is an officer's Shako for the Gendarmerie, or Rural Police. Gendarmerie is designated by the brown trim. Only officers wore the chinscales in lieu of a chinstrap. The eagle is much more detailed and has more of a 3-D effect than the NCO models pictured above and below--it is also frosted with polished highlights. Officer Tschakos used an elastic band hidden behind the scales to hold the brush in place. The white buffalo hair is finer and "frizzier" than the horsehair of the NCO's:

    & last but not least the red horsehair bush for a bandsman. While the other 2 are uncommon, this one is very rare (I have seen only 4 others):
