Default Gendarmerie Police Shako for Review

Someone private messaged me and wanted my shako posted for comments. I have it currently for sale. Here's the link:

Your link above doesn't work but I found your posting of it.

Not much to discuss, it looks period typical to me. You should be able to search and find a number more posted here. The black plume is probably the difficult part to find. Did it come with the plume when you found it? Also, what's the tie on the plume, does it look like something more modern? Not really able to tell from the pics and they did use a variety of methods to hold the plume down. Is the cockade marked/dated on the reverse?

Thanks, I had no doubt it was real but a potential buyer was asking about and needed comfort. Anyway it sold. Plume came with it, I didn’t take it off for fear of damaging it. Didn’t check the cockade for a date. I appreciate your input.

Best regards,

Dave
