    BTW the badge with the eagle on it says GB.41 on the back, you can see it on the picture.

    Thank you for the reply. How is the price for them in this condition? ($90)

    Both are original WWII period items and $90 is not a bad price, I have seen them going for more than that. Both have all their pins and one is maker marked, Gustav Brehmer, I think it is, I have two KM examples by the same maker, a 41 and a 42. I also have a national shield with the slightly unusual pin arrangement as seen on the one shown, though I dont know the maker, as it's not marked.

    Thank you very much Jerry
    I think I can get even a little bit more off the price. I will probably buy them then

    These look like good original shields to me, but complete pith helmets aren't too uncommon. I would save my money for a complete pith instead.

    Whats a typical price for a complete pith? I'm more into collecting medals, but I saw these and thought the price seemed okay
