Title Shako plate
Nationality German
Period c 1916-18
Price £75.00

This is a mystery helmet plate, apart from the fact that it is German and in the typical ersatz grey metal of the mid to late war years. It is of die-struck two-piece construction: a Prussian Guard star of the type used on shakos, the eagle and motto centre of which has been cut out, with a crown covering the hole made by this excision.

One of the points of the star is broken and one or two a little bent. There is a small split to one of the rays just beneath the crown, and there is a little age wear overall to the paint. Otherwise it is in a field grey/blackened finish, front and back.

I would be very grateful if anyone can enlighten me as to what this is.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

The package arrived savely today and the piece is absolutely marvellous.

It was a pleasure doing business with you and I'm looking forward to future aquisitions.
