    I would think they are attached to a topical helmet , but a shot of the prongs on the interior would help .

    Possible the Heer has been replaced. At least it is missing the bottom prong. And have not seen one with such a pronounced turn in the beak of the eagle. But maybe it's a variant I have not seen.

    But, I'm not well versed so these are just observations on my part.

    That said, do you have a photo of the whole lid? The band on the pith helmet is not like the standard issues I've seen.

    The badges are replacements that I purchased at a militaria fair, the prongs are quite fragile but if needed I could try and remove them just a bit worried the prongs will come off. The helmet has been on here before on a previous thread , I will try and put a link to it.

    Tropical helmet Here is the original thread for the actual helmet. The badges on it are repros that I had at the time.

    I'm confused. Maybe it's me. The photos in Post #1 appear to be a different helmet than post #8.

    I wouldn't bend or touch the prongs any more than necessary.
