This is a very collectible helmet that displays beautifully, a Kriegsmarine Tropical Pith helmet for Administrator. These are almost impossible to find anymore, in any condition. We’ve been lucky enough to handle two.

The condition overall is on par with others we’ve encountered, which are most often fairly dirty due to the light color of the fabric. Imagine trying to keep this thing clean while under the conditions of a war!

The eagle on the front still has much of its original silvering. The interior / underside is very clean, with the expected bright red fabric liner on the dome, with the green fabric on the underside of the brim. The leather band is in very nice condition, with the expected markings on the underside (see photos), including the size marking of “59”. The chin strap is broken near the loop, but could be repaired with a little love. The leather of the chinstraps on these is very thin – unlike those found on the steel helmets.

This helmet would display best on a hat stretcher or tightly fit to a foam head as some of the rigid sections of the brim have become brittle, causing the helmet to be slightly misshapen when laying flat. As you can see in the photos, we have the helmet on a cap stretcher and it looks absolutely stunning!
