Re: I ask for opinions

If i am not mistaken these look to be from the surplus stock found in Czech post war. We have discussed this in various threads while Tim was around.

Re: I ask for opinions

Agree with Chris and not sure they are LW but maybe ss. These nice helmets are from the Cz tropical cache found near Prague. Thousands of tropenhelms without insignia were found along with tropical web gear and Saharan tunics. Used by the locals. For many years the school children and scouts, gardeners could be seen wearing them around Prague back in the 70s..

The fact that they appear without insignia and have tan/natural trim leads me to believe they are actually from the 4th ss Polizie Div which passed through the Prague depot and received tropical as uniforms and headgear end route to Greece '44. The Div wore the tropenhelm without insignia in Greece as photos show and then switched back to its gray uniforms upon returning to Prague in later 44.

Re: I ask for opinions

Also should be mentioned that many of these "LW" helmets found these days are from this horde with post war added insignia often which is fake especially the eagles...

Originally both green and tan helmets were found all without any insignia.
