GERMAN WW2 AFRIKA KORPS TROPICAL PITH HELMET. With anti dust-sun-wind goggles inc the small bag. Quite solid helmet in all areas except for one small area with cracks due to a hit in cork material.
I signed it with red circle on the last photo. When you touch that area you can feel from boths sides. The parts of the cork which are displaced but are still holding. It's practically not visible and no big deal.(being so fragile I wonder how such helmets could stay intact after 75 years or so). There are no signs that the decals were ever worn on the helmet.
Goggles are in fine condition. Strap is still elastic with some stains and worn points on few spots. Rommel signed postcard photo is only for reference and will be listed separately. Check also my other items, thanks!
