Cavalry soldiers' hat
« on: February 27, 2024, 11:58:26 »
Found in my spares box, two varieties of cavalry soldiers’ hats with plumes. On the left in each of the following pictures is the hat and plume from 5580/6305, with two ‘prongs’ on the back of the plume, 2 holes for those prongs and 2 holes for the chinstrap.
On the right is a hat with only one hole (no chinstrap holes) and a different-shaped plume. Where is this hat from? Is it even Playmobil?

Yes, Lyra is a possibility. Sets 1032, 2017, 2117 and 4106 all have the hat without a chinstrap, but the plumes are the same shape as the PM one,
