Default LW pith helmets valuation

I'm considering selling my two LW pith helmets,one tan, one green. Both with what i believe to be original eagles. Thing is, I've searched online, and various forums but cannot establish a value for them.
I would post photos, but am not able to I'm afraid. Perhaps if people wanted to view them, i could send the photos to a member so they could in turn post on here perhaps?

Many thanks

Manny

HI,

I'm interested in seeing these pith helmets and maybe take them off you.

Just to put things into perspective, here's a mint pith Helmet from an unusual maker that was sold last week

I think a much better explanation for that pith helmet is that it is a French pith helmet made for use in the French colonies, to which someone has added a set of shields. When I was a kid, you could buy sets of these shields on a green index card for $5.
