Kriegsmarine Tropenhelm Eagle Insignia

A rare example of the large Kriegsmarine Eagle Insignia worn on early variants of the white and khaki coloured Tropenhelm (pith helmet)
This example has the correct single attachment slider but is generally let down by the condition, have entirely lost its gilt finish and with bending, mostly to the right wing.
This insignia was short lived and soon replaced by the double shield arrangement making them quite scarce.
