This is a well used Kriegsmarine tropical pith helmet. The helmet is made of formed cork, and is covered in a ribbed, tan/khaki cotton twill. The helmet features a six panel, vertically seamed, tan/khaki cotton twill crown.

The edge of the visor is trimmed with stitched on brown leather. The helmet has two stamped metal shields with the gold national eagle to the left side and the national tricolor shield to the right side; they are unbordered which is correct for the KM.

The bottom edge of the visor is lined in green cotton as is the interior crown. The interior of the helmet has a tan leather sweatband, stitched to a pressed cardboard liner band which is attached to the helmet by six prongs.
