    What is it about the piece that makes you think it is a fake ?
    It is customary to point out the red flags rather than just saying "fake".

    It looks good to me. Liner looks period, metal trim is period. Mortar board is correct.
    I see nothing to indicate that it is a fake.

    It is my opinion that it is a hard to find ersatz war time Ulan Tschapka.

    The liners is Tsapkas ALWAYS have square tipped fingers. The example shown is typical of a 1960/70s English made replica.

    The War time ersatz Tschapkas had rounded liner fingers for expediency of production.

    The pre war leather helmets had squared liner fingers.

    The helmet shown on this thread is as good as gold.

    I have five Model 1915 Tsapkas sitting in my office. ALL of them have square fingers.

    Also liner is not fitted correctly. There are a few other points on this piece that are questionable.
