Germany, Verkehrspolizei. A Traffic Police (Verkehrspolizei) EM/NCO’s Shako by Robert Lubstein

(Verkehrspolizei Tschako). A very well-preserved Verkehrspolizei EM/NCO’s shako, constructed of moulded white vulcanfibre. The body of the Shako has an extruding, curved reverse with a downward sloping front and a classic coffee can-style top. The shako is flanked on each side by dual ventilation holes with wire mesh screens and a sliding interior panel permitting one hole to be closed. The peak of the shako bears a removable, Ordnungspolizei-style tri-colour cockade constructed of painted aluminum and measuring 35 mm (w) x 65 mm (h). The front bears a gilded second-pattern Ordnungspolizei-style German national eagle, measuring 150 mm (w) x 90 mm (h) and secured to the shako by dual reverse screws visible on the interior. The shako is flanked on each side by gilded rivets holding in place a white leather chinstrap, adjustable with dual buckles, which rests upon the visor when not in use. The inside of both the front and reverse visors are painted dark green. Stitched into the interior is a brown leather liner, perforated with ventilation holes at the forehead, and bearing nine fingers. Each finger is stamped with six holes, with a leather drawstring looped through each of the top holes. The crown is stamped with a size of “57 ½” and a maker’s mark of “ROBERT LUBSTEIN, BERLIN NW21” and “EREL-BERLIN, FIBER-TSCHAKO”. It measures 195 mm (w) x 255 mm (l) x 155 mm (h). Some scratching and material fatigue is evident to the vulcanfibre, but the shako is in an otherwise better than very fine condition.
