I have this rare bird in my collection for a while now and finally managed to take some pictures. Itís a Prussian M15 lacquered felt Tschako in rather good condition.
Something is strange on the other hand, it has a Reichskokarde and a Prussian kokarde as well. Iíve looked several times to find traces of a Feldzeichen, but it seems there was never one applied an also it seems the Prussian kokarde was there forever. Is it possible that a Tschako was worn that way? The previous owner had found it with a red fabric ball on a metal wire in the slit of the Feldzeichen, but that also didnít create any marks. I think it was something from a fanfare or circusÖ
Maybe someone can post a period picture or so and hopefully this little mistery can be solvedÖ
