A nice pith helmet everything looks good, Bill is a good trust worthy seller just is on the pricey side. Great pith helmet
I would expect the shields to be mint on a mint unissued helmet...
Nice 'sun helmet' made by JHS!
Thank you Dean, I needed a mate to my first pattern. I usually try and buy salty stuff, so the super mint stuff freaks me out a bit still. I trust Bill 100 percent, but I have to ask my forum gang for opinions. After the above comments, I am sure the shields are fine. Watch Jerry jump on and say FAKE, would make me laugh my ass off. Ok thanks to everyone who commented, as always your opinions mean a lot to my collecting.
