    Hello all,

    I can't make up my mind on this one and wanted to see what everyone else thought, is this a green or a tan one?

    Green and they sometimes come in different colours/shades as they are using up whatever is to hand. This two tone example was for sale a while back, though all tan, it is of two distinct shades.

    Hello again,

    So it is the band above the rim that makes the difference, correct?

    It is the main area of the tropenhelm when viewed from above which decides what colour it is. In this case the dome and the brim is green and the dome trim is tan as is the underside.
