Hello, along with the steel helmets and mortar i purchased, i also bought this PAVN pith helmet. My question is, is this a military issue or a civillian aka tourist purpose only? The helmet is crude made especially on the placement of the vent hole which is assymetrical.
The vent hole is weird looking too.
There’s some dried glue spot too.
The label (super durable helmet, warranty 12 months?)
The seller also send the helmet paper container. And i think its from the other sun helmet since the words mean is (advance super durable helmet, warranty 2 years?)
Btw i found these photos depicting the construction of the pith helmet. Photos from Pachot - Photographer profile
So gentlemen, is this a military issue sun helmet? Or a tourist one?
