Thta may be old, but I am pretty sure it is not German. I was offered something like this and compared it carefully to the originals on this web site http://www.kaisersbunker.com/pt/pelzmutze.htm and it was not even close. The inside should be cane and otehr materials, and the hair on the one that you posted looks like it came off an old coat. Mr. Lumsden can comment better, but that looks like a replica skull too.

Welcome your views, Tony has said the same, the shape ihowever s the same as on the website and while I agree the pelt is strange it was not unknown to have brown fur, if the skull is a copy then I will return it if it is not (and it looks like its been on there for ever) I shall keep it (it was cheap) thanks again, Paul

Its not just the shape, its how it is made. The inside top on original EM examples are cardboard, the sides are cane tied together. he has interior photos there. Plus, I just checked his list of hussar regiments http://www.kaisersbunker.com/gtp/New/husar0.htm and the two Leib hussars were not in the Guard Corps. Yours is marked for the guard corps I beleive, which is not correct either. As I said, I was offered something like this, he explained to me that it was probably a real busby, just not a german one, He called it a "prussianized" busby of some sort, probably british. So, that e-mail saved me over $2000.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
