    Default Kriegsmarine Tropenhelm (Pith Helmet), Opinions needed please

    Good morning,

    I have received pictures of this KM pith helmet and I am not too sure what to think about it.

    I have used Jerry's list of pith helmet makers and I cannot find this maker there. Also with the eagle removed their appears to be no discolouration of the helmet as you would expect.

    With my limited knowledge I would pass on it, would I be correct in doing so?

    Thank you, Glen.

    Hi Glenn, its a French made example. It could very well be a Kriegsmarine reissue. But it can also be a French colonial example destroyed to make a fast buck.

    Its a nice lid, if cheap. I would buy it for what it is.
    Cheers
    Nuno
