    This one is being sold as a repro. Some nice work. Here is his description:

    This Sammleranfertigung (collector copy) of a post-1897 government depot-issued style Pelzmütze (hussar’s fur cap) for an enlisted man in Leib-Husaren-Regiment Nr. 1 features…


    * black faux fur to mimic the Seehundsfell found on the old ones
    * interior framework of cane hoops with upright staves laboriously stitched onto
    a waffled/ribbed/corrugated canvas form --- even includes the treated black canvas band
    behind the leather liner
    * arched “Vaterland” motto bandeau and large, eerie Totenkopf front plate in silvered finish
    with some artificially induced signs of patina
    * bag/Kolpak of red wool secured with black metal hooks
    * capline loops of white cording with white EM caplines included
    * issue-style field badge of white cloth with hand-sewn black center
    * serrated national Kokarde on the right side (Busbies by regulation did not bear a cockade
    on the left side; the field badge was worn instead.)
    * black leather liner with large, pointed tongues and a drawstring in approximately 59 cm size**
    * M94 chinstrap posts
    * brass convex chin scales

    Being sold on Ebay as a repro--this guy does good work:



    "This Sammleranfertigung (collector copy) mimics the officer’s brown Pelzmütze (hussar’s fur cap) that was the standard pattern until 26 May 1912**. (Although the gray ‘possum fur officer busby was adopted in May 1912, brown busbies were still seen in use until 1917.)

    Features…

    brown Otterfell over a non-rigid body (Hussar officer busbies, unlike issued pattern enlisted bodies, were generally made with an upper ring of cane atop a non-rigid body. As seen in the photos of the liner, the body flexes for the wearer’s comfort.)
    white bag/Kolpak
    rolled Prussian officer caplines of silver cording with black flecking
    massive, eerie Totenkopf plate ("galvano" copy in silvered finish with patina) with black velvet socket inserts
    Feldzeichen/field badge of silver cording cord with black velvet center and velvet backing with a tiny silver Reserve cross mounted in the middle
    (Reserve officers in the two L.H. regiments wore a cross on the field badge in lieu of a “Vaterland” bandeau/ribbon on the body of the busby.)
    scallop-edged leather liner (approximately 59 cm / U.S. 7 3/8 size) with upper section of ribbed cloth
    gold-plated brass convex chin scales and two-part national color officer Kokarde
    See Herr & Nguyen’s The German Cavalry from 1871 to 1914 for reference; see also Joachim Hilsenbeck’s Deutsche Offiziershelme aus der Kaiserzeit 1870-1918, Volume 2.
    (I looked through six references before even finding a photo of a reserve officer LH busby; the originals are so rare they don’t show up very often in the helmet books.)"
