If another auction participant places a bid of $110 dollars, the system will subsequently place a bid of $111 dollars on your behalf. The system will continue to bid in $1.00 dollar increments until your maximum bid of $120 dollars is exceeded.

If another auction participant places a bid for $125 dollars, the auction lot price will display $121 dollars having exceeded your previously submitted maximum bid by $1.00 dollar.

A Second War Highland Regiment Wolseley Pith Helmet

This hardshelled helmet has a light khaki cotton twill covering, the edge trimmed in a strip of light khaki cotton twill, with a khaki pugaree (cloth wrap) around the circumference at the base of the dome, a Gordon tartan placed upon the pugaree on the left side, with a 53 mm x 54.5 mm white metal Highland Regiment pith helmet badge upon the tartan, adjustable ventilation cap on the top, its underlying base in brass, a hole on the front where a badge once resided that has since been lost to time, a two-piece butterscotch-coloured chin strap stretched across the brim, the two pieces joined by a buckle on the right side, with both ends of the conjoined strap held in place via hooks on the underside at the base of the dome. The interior lined in a brushed green felt, with a stiff-framed oval ring for head placement, the ring covered with a wide light brown leather headband that houses a drawstring fed through multiple die-cut slots and is loosely tied together at the rear, the headband stamped with four marks: an insignia with three emanating bands, a "FAILSWORTH HATS Ltd." maker mark, the size "6 3/4" and dated "1942". The helmet measures 270 mm x 370 mm x 180 mm in height, exhibiting light soiling on the exterior, oxidation spot on the pith helmet badge, wear and light soiling on the headband, contact marks in the dome. As worn. (C:152)
