An Italian model 1928 2nd pattern sun helmet which was taken into German navy service during the second half of the war, probably after Italy left the war and Germany took over control of all of Italy and all their depots etc.

It has unusual Tropical shield insignia which are only seen on these Italian/German conversions and are considered to be theater made, but probably by Italian makers under German orders. These special type of shields are covered in Ken N's book on German Combat helmets of WWII on page 397-399. The other feature that distinguishesthese official conversions is they have a property of the German armed forces or Navy inkstamp inside them. If they don't have the stamp they are either field conversions or post war put togethers.

It is damaged and has some considerable areas of staining and has a period repair but isa very rare helmet and most of those you see were found mint and unissued on the island of Capri in the 1970's. The pics show the damage and form part of the description but if you want more or to talk to me about it, pm me.

300 plus P&P.
