    It looks good Nuno and I'm glad it arrived safely. After the 1st pattern, then you'll need a Luftwaffe example and a KM as well etc...

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Whenever I come home with another tropenhelm, my wife says 'a man can never have too many pith helmets'. Who am I to argue with that!

    No Nuno, it's either an early example or has been rebadged with early shields, made from brass, IMO.

    Heer shields have a raised border around the edge, whilst KM do not.

    Here are brass, Aluminium and Zinc Heer shields and an aluminium KM example. Brass and aluminium are usually thought to be early and zinc later, but that might not be completely correct, as by 1940 1941 all types are being issued.

    Very nice one with googles Nuno.

    When I compared mine with other helmets I have, I'm surprised how big this troppenhelm are.

    Excelente o seu com esses óculos Nuno.

    Quando eu comparo o meu com os demais capacetes que eu tenho, fico surpreso de ver o quão grandes eles são.

    Regards,

    Ricardo
