German WWII Afrikakorps Sun Helmet with Metal Badges and Green Trim (Grade 2)

Regular price $24.95

Item Description

New Made Item: On first deployment to North Africa in 1941, Afrikakorps infantry were issued with the traditional European sun helmet known as Tropische Kopfbedeckung, of the type known to the British forces as the solar topi (or topee). In the German case, these were made of pith, had prominent ventilation holes in the crown, were khaki in color and bore two metal shields; on the right the national colors and on the left the German eagle.

These are factory rejects (GRADE 2) due to the wrong color trim (its too green) but with a little work these can probably be made to look suitable.

IMA has replicated an original German WW2 DAK pith helmet to exacting detail and we have even replicated authentic metal shields (badges) that have the correct period weight, finish and feel. Every helmet has a cleverly adjustable liner to fit sizes US 7 (56cm) up to US 8 (64cm).
