    One looker original Heer 1st pattern canvas tropenhelm, though what colour is the leather edge trim? For text book Heer it should be a grey green colour.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    What colour is the egde trim and can you show pics of the pins of the shields where they appear on the inside, also pics of the underneath?

    The tri colour looks a bit iffy, with a pitted front which should be pebbled and hard to tell on the eagle and they are on the wrong way around, with the eagle on the right and the tri colour on the left. It might be a re badged Luft example, but it is certainly an original.

    Hi Eduardo, welcome to the forum!

    As Jerry mentioned, the leather edging trim is slightly unusual in colour.

    Can we see the inside too please?

    Cheers, Ade.

    I have seen Heer examples with this tan colour trim which is more commonly seen on Luft types and I have seen them badged the wrong way around in original pics, but a re badged Luft is probably what you have.
