PRUSSIA – TSCHAKO – OFFICER – FLIEGER – LUFTSCHIFFER BATAILLON
This is an Officer’s Tschako that is correct for either Prussian Flieger or Prussian Luftschiffer Bataillone. These are the most frequently requested variety of Tschakos of those I offer, although I have rarely been able to find them. Aviation items are of EXTREME interest to many collectors, so I am thrilled to present this Tschako for your consideration.
The Prussian Flieger/Luftschiffer Bataillon Tschako sports a fine, black, felt body decorated with gold chin scales and silver rosettes. The silver-toned, beautifully executed wappen is a work of art, with a gorgeous Garde Star in its center. The Garde Star’s multi colored enamel is perfect, and its central Hohenzollern Eagle stands out splendidly. A very handsome Prussian Officer’s Feldzeichen (made of silver bullion with a black velvet center) is in place, as is a correct Reich’s Kokarde on the Tschako’s right side.
The Tschako’s interior reveals a brown leather sweatband that is in fine condition, with a beige, ribbed-silk liner attached to it. A little bit of its stitching is loose, but that can easily be repaired. I expect this wonderful Prussian Flieger/Luftschiffer Bataillon Tschako to be snatched up quickly!
