    Can't say alot about French Kepi's, but I'd seriously suggest getting rid of the styrofoam head, as they can actually end up damaging your headgear over time.

    i don't use styrofoam heads - i make wooden stands.
    the styrofoam head was used by the previous owner.

    Here is a more or less similar one .
    There was no strict regulation about those kepi's, so you might find as many different types as there were people wearing them.

    I am finding that it is possibly Luxembourg army kepi either pre-war or early post-war.
