Title Schutzpolizei shako cockade, Weimar era
Nationality German
Period c 1933
Sold

This is almost certainly a late Weimar era piece on account of the 'gold', as opposed to the white colour. By 1936 most of these remains of the Weimar Republic had been absorbed by Himmler's polce state, certainly as far as police uniforms went. Even after 1936 some Feurwehr units still wore their old Land insignia on belt buckles for instance.

It is made of aluminium, with a steel support in EPNS finish. The condition is good.

My Arisaka arrived at 9.00am. Very prompt delivery and excellent packaging! The blade is superb.. and just what I was after, its in very fine condition and just as you described.. I've referenced it in my copy of Raymond La Bar's book "Bayonets of Japan".

Many thanks, Chris, once again its been a pleasure doing business!

I am wholly delighted with the shako plate. [It] is a wee cracker. It is a real pleasure to have something combining both condition and quality in equal parts, and I simply could not be more pleased.
