First pattern Pith Helmet, in very good condition, used by SS.
The helmet retains its original SS shields, both made in aluminium.
Under the shields is well visible their shadow on the helmet's fabric, and some points of aluminium oxidation.
The aluminium oxidation of the shields prongs is exactly the same of the helmet aluminium prongs, this means they were in place since the "beginning".
Size 58, produced in 1941 (see ink markings inside the sweatband), and with a hand made inscription of the US vet who brought it back: "Rockwell".
IMO an incredible Waffen-SS pith helmet.
PRICE: 2645 via paypal - 2445 via bank transfer or paypal as family/friend.
