    Period original pith helmet. It is not unusual to find these in excellent condition as a large lot of these were found unissued after the war. The liners were stamped "made in Germany" due to import regulations at the time. Some sellers tried to remove these stamps even though the helmets were genuine to the WW2 period.

    Bob of course is 100% correct.

    Here is mine (1st Pattern however) with the Made in German stamp. It's not hard to see, so doubt you would have missed it on yours.
