Auction News, Tschapka, U.R.5

Recommended Posts

A recent Auction by a UK based auctionier had following lot - A Tschapka of private purchase quality, said to be of Westfälisches Ulanen-Regiment 5, based at Düsseldorf.  The Tschapka is in almost all details of officer qaulity, however, the white rabatt in the regimental colours is an other ranks' example, the leather liner is also specificly other ranks. With the white falling horsehair plume. The item is however incomplete, missing are the Reichskokarde worn on the right side and the oval National worn on the left side of the mortarboard. Missing are also  the cap lines. The headdress was probably for a one-year volunteer or a Fähnrich. Estimated value by the auctionier is 1200 - 1800 GBP. In very fine condition, not misshapen.
The original transport and storage case is also included, this has several travel stickers, from Hannover to London via various other stations, probably pre-WW1. Wearer was possibly sent to the Military Attaché of the German Embassy in London at the time, for representation or educational purposes.

There are a couple of parts missing, but could otherwise be replaced.
