Description

BUSBY – VERY OLD REPRO (MY GUESS IS 1950′ OR 60’S) OFFICER FUR 1ST LEIB-HUSSAR REGT. #1. HERE IS MY TAKE ON THE PARTS SINCE I DID NOT WANT TO TEAR APART A CONSIGNMENT HELMET TO CHECK THEM CLOSELY & MAYBE BREAK A PRONG OR POST. THE SMALL SIZE SKULL IS ATTACHED WITH SQUARE BRASS NUTS/WASHER ON POSTS. IN MY EXPERIENCE THE PLATES ARE USUALLY SPLIT-PIN FOR ALL BUSBIES DUE TO THE CLOSE FIT ON THE HEAD (POSTS WOULD POKE YOU IN THE FORE-HEAD). THE BANDEAU IS PROBABLY REPRO (POINTED PRONG ENDS) BUT A NICE STRIKE (AND WRONG FOR THIS UNIT). HOWEVER – THE ROUNDED CHINSCALES, OFFICER NATIONAL KOKARDE AND SIDE ROSETTES ARE DEFINITELY ORIGINAL AND COULD BE USED ON ANY OTHER MOUNTED HELMET. NOTE – CHINSCALES MALE AND FEMALE CLIP ENDS ARE LOOSE AND RE-ATTACHED TO SCALES. THE ABZEICHEN AND PARADE BUSH ARE REPRO. HE MAKE NO OTHER CLIAMS AND SELLING IT “AS IS”. LARGE SIZE ABOUT 7-1/2. CONDITION IS EXC.
