    Default Pith helmet......

    Hello everyone, Ib have always loved the look of these things as long as I can remember. Never had one before, don't know much about them. Am a bit color blind especially between digital images and seeing things in person. This is best described as green felt. The top is a little mashed down, and the pins on the sides removed. Inside the sweat band is marked, "APN," "1942," and the size, "56." Also two little stamps, "17," and, "84," paper like material stuck inside the sweat band. Thanks.

    2nd pattern German tropenhelm, most of these are Heer issue but I have seen one with KM badges on it.
    Regards,

    What would be the correct correct dust godless you think to go with these? Thanks.

    They wore all different types. But first I would try to find original insignia
    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    This shield is missing 2 of the prongs, best to find another. I was hoping this would attach better, need another.

    They can be found. Just have to be patient and check the major dealers sites.
