    Hi and welcome to the forum, this is a good original tropenhelm, I can see that it was also originally a Luftwaffe one as there is the "shadow" in the area of the material to indicate where the original adler was! Jerry will tell you for sure about the time period , but one thing is for sure,that adler is poor compared to the other parts so I would not buy that from the seller! Also ask the question, why has the seller "removed" the original insignia from the helmet? I guess the answer is that they are not this helmets "original" insignia!! Leon. (P.S. Please don't stalk us ,just join in!!) Leon.

    upper part of eagle should be open, not filled in, so eagle is fake, but tropenhelm itself is OK. Also don't like the shield pins - sorry - pin
