WWII German Army Pith Helmet-This is a choice example with the dark brown cover remaining very tightly attached and in virtually perfect condition. The shields are zinc and most of the finish is present. The grey leather trim around the brim is almost fully intact, with some minor age crazing and a scuff or two. The brown leather chinstrap is in fine condition. The underside of the brim is green wool. The dome is lined in dusky red felt. There is a tan leather sweatband which has minor wear and discoloration from use. It is maker marked JHS on the obverse, with the reverse marked with the size 56 and the date 1942. Excellent!
