WWI German M16 Camouflage Helmet - Steel Camo
Very nice WWI camouflage M16 helmet. Gentler camo pattern then found on most German helmets but a very nice and very undoubtable overall package. Some paint loss due to age and wear and a rub here and there but a great overall look. The liner is complete with pads except for damage to one of the six tongues tongues (Image 5) and small chips to two others. The manufacturer mark looks like TJ 66 for C. Thiel & Soehne, Luebeck. The last number is hard to make out because of the finish wear at that spot but this maker only made sizes 66 and 68 so definitely no smaller then 66. The rivets are all tight and the attachment prongs look to have never been messed with and are well sunk into the leather band. Really a great, unmessed with helmet with an honest and obviously original camouflage paint job.
