This is a untouched original German M16 camouflage helmet, with it's original leather liner, and leather band. The leather is nice and has a great used feel. The top inside of the helmet is stamped with the heat mark "R929". The leather liner is stamped, hard to make it out. The helmet still has two of the three horse hair pillows. All rivets are intact and original to this helmet. The camouflage is original and period applied, this is a great looking helmet. There was and is an old German news paper folded up in the helmet, it need to be translated to see why the German soldier had it in his helmet. This is a great totally original untouched helmet. Only changes to this helmet were made by the German soldier that had it during the great war "WWI".
I have owned this helmet for many years and has been the center of my German WWI display, great helmet that show and displays great. This is a fantastic rare piece of history, that would make a great addition to any collection, or museum. SOLD
