This is a great, untouched original German M16 helmet, with original leather liner, leather liner band and leather chinstrap. The leather is nice and has a great used feel to it. The leather chinstrap has been worn in all the right places and has been stretched our at the chin, "original". The top inside of the helmet is stamped with the heat mark "797". The helmet is further stamped by the chinstrap helmet lugs "L64" The helmet still has two of the three horse hair pillows. All rivets are intact and original to this helmet. The color and feel of this helmet is fantastic, it has a great patina to it. This is truly a original untouched helmet.
I acquired this helmet over fifteen years ago, and has been part of my collection. This is a fantastic piece of history and is a rare item. It would make a great addition to any collection, or museum.
