Impurity is permitted in the context of the community — the case of a kohen offering the omer korban, and it becomes impure. What to do if there is no other pure offering to replace the impure one?

Relevant also to the kohen gadol’s personal worship. So… Is the tzitz what’s important, or the kohen wearing it?
