Description

World War One Imperial German Model 1916 Camouflage Painted Steel Helmet or “Stahlhelm” Maintains Partial Liner & Complete Leather Liner Rim as Well as Liner Rivets and Chinstrap Loops. Helmet bears irregular segments of  “grass” green, “earth” brown and “sand” beige camouflage all separated by medium width bands of black. Helmet shows clearly visible signs of age, wear and use with some rust damage visible to the exterior crown. A pin hole sized spot where the rust has penetrated the steel of the helmet (see photos below) is visible when the helmet is held up to light and examined from the inside. Leather liner rim remains quite solid and shows no signs of red rot or having any sort of “preservative” ever applied. Portions of original liner leather and padding remain present but are a bit fragile and must be handled carefully. Markings remain visible to the skirt and read “W.66.” Overall, a solid helmet that maintains a good portion of the liner and displays very well. A great piece for the money.
